Replacing the passenger axle output seal. Unfortunately, I used pliers to remove the seal and believe it was a big mistake. How do I remove all leftover rubber seal and bang in the new seal?

You need to get a seal remover tool to get the entire seal out.

There are seal installer tools available for installation.

The new seal will not go in as leftover old seal is deep in the grooves.

You guys a great! I found a seal picker on ebay. Looks like an oversized dentist plaque tool.
