Question on Front wheel bearing

I've got a quick question, may be dumb, but am curious to see if its possible to do. Is there any possible way to re-pack the front wheel bearings, one of mine is making a lot of noise, but dont have the money as of now to replace the assembly. Is there a way of repacking them, and possibly just replacing the bearings, or is it truly a non-servicable part?

unfortunately they are definitly non-serviceable... the way they are assembled keeps them from being able to be opened at all. maybe check e-bay to see if theres a cheap one floating around, and worst case senario is if it's bad enough go by a junk yard and pull one from a truck yourself and hopefully they wont charge you hardly anything as they cant garauntee the condition of the part. if its even half decent then it will at least last you until you can get a new unit, and the one you get may still be perfect and have plenty of life.

the hub assembly is a non-servicable part. I'm having the same issue. I found them online for 194. but can get it from the dealer for about the same price.
