Default I used

I used a part that plugs into the drill. You can put differant pads on it a it's about 1 inch in diameter. It does it quick and easy. That being said you can use a razor blade to scrape alot of it off and then some steel wool to clean it up.

Yep, I just used a razor blade then applied my own healthy helping of sealant when I reinstalled. No leaks thus far...though I did it this morning

Yep use the razor blade if thats all you have but make sure you don't dig into the metal and leave any marks in it. Normally you would use a gasket scraper and then a simple wire brush to get any remaining sealant off.

I used a rubberized brush connected to my die grinder for mine. Worked great and took just a few minutes.

I've had mine off & on a billion times. I usually use a regular screwdriver or whatever is a flat edge and is close to get what is remaining off. The tricky part is getting it off the pan, which I have a small wire wheel that I put in my drill and clean the pan with. They're like $5 at local hardware stores if you already have a drill and make the job REAL easy.

Oh, and I've never used any of the standard sealants, only Hondabond directly from Honda. Stuff works absolutely unbelievably and I've never had a seal issue when using it.
