i would do the same as the other post has said, but i would use the old seal to drive the new seal in with a rubber mallet that way you cant damage the fork.

SOURCE: Front fork seal is leaking
Yep, drain the fork oil, raise the front wheel in the air, remove the front wheel and axle. The nut to remove the lower leg is at the bottom, hidden by the axle. If it still leaks after seal replacement your fork tubes and lower leg sliders are worn out. Reassemble and remove the top fork cap. Pour in the correct cc of fork oil and ride.

Get a manual if you are going to take the fork all the way apart as there are alot of pieces inside. If you are just replacing the seal, you will need a way to remove the old seal without damaging the fork. Sometimes a pick or screwdriver will work. Then you will need a tool to drive the new seal in. You can find out what size forks you have, and buy a seal driver for it.

Before you take it to the shop try this.Get some camera film,Cut the notched edge of it and trim the top to an angle of 45 deg..Slide this up into the fork seal and working it up and down,slide it all the way around the seal.When you get the feel of it,you can feel tiny bits of grit.This will clean the grit out 99% of the time.I always keep a piece of film in the toolbox.
