You can use a dowel or other piece of wood to punch out the seal. This is less likely to damage it. Constantly hitting the dowel with a rubber mallet while rotating the dowel around the seal works best.

Probably what I missed is moving the bearing as far away from the seal as possible. I let the bearing fall on the seal which didn't allow anything to get around it to knock out the seal.

Tough to beat this tool for less than $10

Here is what I use from Sears or any auto parts store for pulling the seals: Seal Puller: Automotive
