A hammer and long punch to drive out the grease seal.
You will probably destroy the seal in the process so hope you bought a new one.

It's the round thing with metal on the outside and a rubber ring which goes around the spindle.
It will be around a quarter inch thick and is press fit into the back side of the rotor .

If you intend to reuse the wheel bearings , take note that the bearing races pressed into the new rotor may or may not conform to the old bearings . I have read on these forums of people having the bearings go out within a few weeks to a few months by reusing the old bearings with new races instead of purchasing new bearings with races .
