    They should be sealed bearings with a rubber seal between the inner and outer race. These are usually black. If it is silver then it is just a dust seal and it is probably worth buying new bearings with a rubber seal. Sealed bearings aren't really servicable, you just replace them when they wear. You can prize out the rubber caps, clean them and regrease them but you'd need to be on a very tight budget to do it.

      fair play, fair play

      its a black seal, which i have prised off. i have put more grease on the bearings, but it is still rubbing slightly.

      i will probably just buy some new bearings.
