I used goo gone or you can use any adhesive remover and let it run in the channel and soak for a while. then use paper towels and a flat blade screw driver to scrape it out. I got mine almost perfectly clean and I have a perfect seal with zero problems on my headlights.

Heat and goo be gone is your best bet, the original comes off pretty easy.

When I did mine I used a hair dryer to take it off the head light cover and. Left the glue stuff in and when I put it back together I just heated up that same glue and reuse it. And then added a little more on top to give it a good seal its been holding up so far
