I removed the valve cover to replace a leaking valve cover gasket on a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant. The Gasket is stuck on the cover and I can only take it out in pieces. There are still small pieces stuck on the cover. I tried to scrape it off gently but ended up scratching the cover. How can I remove the remaining pieces? Is their any chemical that helps? Do I need to replace the cover? Thanks

Use a wire brush on it or a gasket scraper-push come to shove use Acetone
