I would not recommend a heat gun. The plastic is easy to melt. A hairdryer would be sufficient if you choose to apply heat. I did not find the need to apply heat at all though, and the front panel came loose with gentle pressure.
Update: I wanted to let people know that I was shipped a Motherboard from the company when I called them about the issue. Replacing the motherboard (not the Display panel) resolved my 'no display' issue.
