Yep, can be done on the bike, but rather than pry the seal out with a blade, you may want to get a couple (as in just two) small self tapping screws about #4 or #6 and screw them into the seal then pull it out with pliers or vice grips on the screws.
One method works for some folks, and the other works for some folks.
