The EZ-Lube have a rubber cap in the center of a more cylindrical dust cover.
If you have a domed, all-metal dust cover, then you have the traditional setup that requires disassembly in order to repack the bearings.
The way I was taught to remove the dust cover was with a rubber mallet. Strike lightly downwards and outwards (pull as you tap) while rotating the wheel. This nudges the cap out of the drum.
During re-assembly, the mallet is used to drive the cap back into place directly.
