Seal is driven into trans. Has metal case and lip seal with garter spring to hold tight to axle. Seal can be removed with a seal puller and sometimes a screwdriver. Some fluid will come out. The two seals maybe for left and right sides they are different. Not sure what you mean by first part of seal? Can you post a PIC?
