My first thought is to try thinner so the paint wouldn't be also removed (if you have some paint near it), but if that doesn't work you could try a glue remover or even a paint remover.

If you want the unconvetional way you could put it in the freezer and the glue might go off but I would preffer using thinner as this way might have bad consequences on the whole part.

How did you get the flocking on the part? Did you put it on right over the wet paint, or did you let the paint dry, and then apply the flocking over a coat of white glue? Either way, you'll need to use a solvent that will break up whatever you used for adhesive. If paint, use CSC; if glue, water should work.

Depending on the situation, you might want to consider sanding it off. That way, surrounding areas are not disturbed.

Can't you spray the right color right over the flocking?
Light coats of flat or matte paint would probably work.

I don't think that would work, the fibers will absorb the paint into them and it will lose its texture, its not like textured plastic where you can just paint over it.

Well not if you dust the paint on with an airbrush in several thin layers.
I haven't tried to do this but I think it might work and if the color is wrong you have nothing to loose.
