Default rear wheel bearing, 86 accord

I am replacing rear brakes on my 86 Accord (130K) for what I suspect is the
first time. The bearing assembly is different from the Nissans, Toyotas,
and VWs that I have worked on that it is a one piece assembly that fits over
the spindle and inside the hub. Everything comes off by removing a 32mm nut
tightened at about 130 ft-lbs. My question is whether this bearing assembly
is DIY serviceable. My Haynes manual provides no information about it and
no exploded view. If I pry out the seal can I clean and repack the bearing
without special tools as I have done on the cars mentioned above? Or since
the bearing is not loose and moves as expected should I just leave it alone?

I can't say for certain,but I believe that wheel bearings today are sealed
and not repackable.
If the bearing is not showing any signs of wear(noise,free
play,wobble),then I'd leave it alone.
