That part is the AWD right ouput shaft seal.

As for removal: try getting a screwdriver up under the outside of the seal, then pushing part of the seal inward by hammering on the screwdriver. This pushes the seal inward, making it like a heart shape, and it will come out after enough deformation.

Or buy a seal puller.

I used a 6" crowbar I bought from homedepot. Put the 90 degree elbow in seal hole edge and gently twisted the crow foot behind seal and it popped out. Though this was on driver side and had her limited access due to the xfer case being in my way.

Do as the others have suggested to remove the old seal. To install the new one, if you have a socket close in diameter to the seal, tap the socket with a hammer lightly to drive the seal in place evenly until it seats.
