A screwdriver would do the job but the lower one is difficult to remove because it has a hard outer metal case.
Take care not to damage the seats when removing or else it would cause leaking. No gasket sealants recommended but remember to lubricated the inner lips. A little oil on outer of seal would make installation easier.
You need a round cone for installation. There are 5 seals to be replaced if you want to have them all replaced. 1 is behind the lower balancer shaft pulley, you need to press the pulley out.
Make sure you mark the positions before taking out the belts. If you take the lower balancer housing out, 1 O ring is needed, you need to lock the shaft at the service hole on the block. Take note of markings.
