I just did mine again the other night. Very easy.
My front wheel would drag horribly when spun on a stand. the back too but kinda' expected because of the chain. I pulled them off and pulled the caps and pulled the seals / cleaned up as much crappy lookin' stuff as I could. Then I simply used my fingers to PACK grease back into them.
Shove the seals and caps back and WALLA'
As soon as that was done I spun the wheels and both were at least 2 to 3 times better!
No more drag. :D
