How do I repack wheel bearing on a 2006

I am doing ball joints and my wheel bearing feels ok but I would like to repack it before reinstalling, however I cannot see any of the bearings. There are covers over the bearings. Do I just get as much in as I can? That method sure wont be very efficient. I hope someone has a trick to it. Also where is the needle bearing I have heard so much about? My truck is a 2006, The only bearing I found is the wheel bearing.

The four wheel drive wheel bearings used in the front end were not intended to be serviced-just replaced-and yes it will set you back a few hundred bucks. I would replace the seal on the axel shaft and slap some greese on the bearing for the stub shaft.

I was just looking through my old posts and saw this one. I have some info on this. The needle bearings are in the lockout. There is a c ring on the inner side of the lockout. Remove the ring and let the gear drop (it drops about an eighth of an inch). You can then see the ends of the needle bearings. Its a messy job but you can get grease in there by just pressing it in like with old style bearings. I just took my time and when I felt like I had enough in there I had to raise the gear back up while reinstalling the c ring (yeah it is kinda a pita), If I had three hands it would be simple (little hands that is). And as for the wheel bearing, I removed the abs sensor and took off the tip of the grease gun and put the hose into the hole and pumped until I saw clean grease coming out behind the plate the wheel studs are in. I was also spinning the hub while pumping grease. Im sure this doesnt lube it completely, but It has got to be better than nothing. Just some thoughts.
