You can buy a tool for it, but I'd probably just go buy a cheap deep-well socket and grind it into shape, like I did to make this steering stem bearing nut removal tool:

Did you have a timing belt break?

From what I can see in the pic it looks flush with the seal but if it is proud of the seal could you maybe chase it off with a drift? If not maybe you could pull the seal out and gain purchase? I’m just spitballing.

And yeah, what happened?

Or is that even a seal we’re looking at?

If that is the flywheel could you just lock the engine and build a tool to rotate the whole assembly?

Look very carefully there and you'll see a snap ring to pry off. Then the clutch basket just slides off.
