try a steam gun it should loosen the glue that with a sharp scrapper

or if you have a sensitive hand a heat gun and scrapper

ask a body shop person they have sprays similar to wallpaper remover for removing decals and glue

The fein tool works on this sort of thing. Using the oscillating blade, I used one to remove foam sound deadening material from panels around the engine compartment. Does not harm the surface. Gets under the adhesive holding the foam in place. Much cleaner than sprays etc.

Remove what you can and then use wallpaper remover. No easy way unfortunatley.

If the sound insulation was installed contact cement, wall paper solvent and scrubbing might remove some of the insulation material, but will not get you down to a clean surface. just saying..

if it is contact cement, then lacquer thinner and a scraper will be your best bet.
harsh and bad fumes.
