There are scratches everywhere but I am mostly worried about getting rid of that blob of PLA. I tried heating the printcore up to 210C for 10 minutes but to no avail. 

Any ideas of how to get rid of it without damaging any vital parts?

If just heating up the core is not enough, try it with a heat gun to carefully soften the filament. I would start at lower temperature and increase it step by step just to that temperature which is working.

I've used Euro-Claddings Quick Paint Remover to soften up PLA (as a last resort).

I believe it's banned in the EU. You might try something similar like Bardahl Gasget and Paint Stripper.

Yes, I suppose that is kinda funny 😛 The stuff works like a charm but I guess it's just a little too aggresive for us overprotected europeans.

I also cleaned up my core with a heat gun first but couldn't get rid of the burnt bits. This stuff did. 😛
