Lubricate the rubber seal to prevent damage to the lip and tap the seal in evenly. If the output shaft is worn where the seal meets the shaft then you will have more leaks.

do i use a flat head screwdriver to take bad one off?

You may want to invest in a seal puller as they don't cost much. What ever you do, don't scratch the output shaft.
