I just use an exacto blade or hobby knife. I get the blade behind the seal and just pry it up.

Thumbs up

Yep. Exacto knife. 5 times outta 10 you will break the very end of the tip off...so I just keep an old hobbico with a broke tip for just that reason.

When you pry it out do it on the large OD of the seal...not the ID.

That is correct pry it out using the outer race as a leverage point.
