I don't think you can re-use them, as they are pressed in and must be pried out.

Haynes describes this and it's pretty easy. If you are going to be a DIY'er, you should pick one of these up. You can find them at Pep Boys or any parts house.

To remove the seal once the rotor is off: Use a hammer and chisel to deform the seal. Then pry it off with a big screwdriver. Remove all the old grease. Grease the inside of the seal, place it over the opening and place a large(same size) socket over the seal and tap it into place.
