After reading about the possibility of over greasing and popping the rear seal off, I have to admit that I am hesitant to take a chance on trying to grease it myself.
If you lost the cap while traveling, I would have that wheels' bearings removed, cleaned and repacked. There is a good chance that dirt, & road debris etc. could have contaminated the bearing grease.
If it's been awhile since the other bearings have been serviced, might be a good excuse to do them all.
