You can try to get under the outer lip and work it out but you can not scratch or danage the surfaces at all. Others as I recall say you have to pull that cover and go in on the back side and tap it out. There is also an oil seal that has to be replaced as well. Know that that machanical seal must not get any oil on either of the surfaces..not even fingerprint oil Only water or coolant. And be carefull as many have broken then during the install.
