If it's not installed get a tote and fill it with hot water and Dawn liquid dish soap and let it sit in there for a bit. Then clean out all you can, rinse,repeat until clean.

Brake cleaner works great too, but it can damage plastic pieces.

I would think a pressure washer with soap pre-mixed would help. I don't think degreaser will cut it unless it was something kind of caustic, and in that case I would expect possible damage to the nylon based material.

Dawn liquid dish soap is the best and won't harm anything.
