FWD bearings? Do they need to be greased?

I've replaced the wheel bearing on a 1989 Toyota Celica ST (took the entire knuckle off and took it to a machine shop for them to press the bearings and then re-installed knuckle).

This was a similar procedure that a friend used on a 1987 Honda Accord and a 1982 Plymouth Reliant (all FWD cars).

There is no place that I can tell where I can grease the bearings. Do they have to be greased - either when installed or periodically?

If so, how?

Ditto. You can only hope they outlive the life of the car.
