No reason to remove it completely, just push it off to the side. The gasket will probably get stuck in the housing itself, in which case you can pry it out carefully, probably in several pieces. Once it's removed, clean both mating surfaces. The gasket sits in a channel in the housing, so seating the gasket is not an issue. Just put some oil on it, push it in the channel, and reattach the housing to the engine.
