Dryer seal

Does anyone out there have any tips or advice to help make it easier for me to change the rear drum seal on my Roper electric clothes dryer?
I've been wondering how to remove the original seal's adhesive. Does the surface have to be completely free of old adhesive before gluing on the new seal?
