No, they are no 'sealed bearings.' They have inner and outer conical bearings that must be pressed out, packed with grease, and pressed in. There is also a seal for them. The Inner bearings are pressed into the knuckle, the outer bearings are pressed onto the hub. The hub is then pressed into the knuckle.

Jack it up, remove the wheel, pry off the center cap, remove the cotter pin and nut, then pull the bearings out with the hub. Note that some trailer bearings are sealed and replaced as an entire unit.

If it is not a sealed bearing then this is normal, in fact bearings must periodically be repacked. However if it is a newer vehicle with sealed bearing then this could mean a possible seal that has pushed out.

Hi,The wheel bearings are indeed sealed. But a more correct term might be "integrated", as the wheel bearings are part of the hub assembly on these vehicles, and many other GM vehicles. The Hub/Wheel Bearing assemblies also include the wheel speed sensors, which are used to help control the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and traction control.Take Care, Greg
