I would try white spirit first, then one of the proprietary sticky stuff removers if it doesn't work, test in a hidden are first to check for any adverse effect.

I don’t know if these will work but I’ve always got a tub in the cupboard, they shift many things.

put some thin oil ref 3 in 1 oil or duck oil as we call it in the trade this will make the residue brake down and then can be cleaned off with brake cleaner spray

Plus 1 to Paul. WD40 is amazing for removing just about any residue from sticky tape or labels - but do check it first in an unimportant area.
