No.. and No... To properly service most winches you must be able to remove them (conceivably twice a year??).You must disassemble the winch to remove it. Try to find a good schematic or original instruction manual for the specific model.
However.. from personal experience they may be extremely difficult to remove. On my boat the corrosion was so severe that both winch bases were cracked and had to be replaced.
