You need to remove the whole rack assembly first (disconnect hydraulic lines, remove clamp bolts (2) at upper end lower end of column, lift of column from rack and put to one side, put car on ramp or jack stand, loosen and free the two tie rod ends, remove two bolts holding the rack to subframe and remove rack). Dissasembling the bit where the seal is isn't difficult but you will need a suitable seal driver to put the new seal in. Get some sort of workshop manaul though; this isn't a job to try without one if you have had experience doing a rack before. It also helps if you know how to do you own wheel alignment (and have some basis tools to do so).
