Use Brakleen on a rag, don't let it soak very long, then clean again with Isopropyl Alcohol.
The original gasket is attached with what is ostensibly double faced scotch tape. peel as much of that as possible before cleaning the surface.
Goo Gone might work well on the tape itself but it is likely to leave a mess which the Brakleen will make short work of.
