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?

That is the output shaft the clip is what holds axle on. The oil seal goes around and seals on axle trace there is no need to replace clip when replacing seal. What is on table don't know. Was problem oil leak or CV joint problem?
