    As I pointed out in another post, all of these routine repair procedures are explained in great detail in the "Repair Help" section of www.parktool.com

    You're riding a BMX bike I gather? Some BMX pedals require a different size pedal wrench, I think it's 1/2". In either case, you put the wrench on the flats of the spindle between the pedal and the crank.

    Sheldon Brown, I miss you. Thanks for the advice, ideas, humor, and infectious enthusiasm for everything bikes...

    Yeah, it's either 15mm or 1/2" and you remove the pedals by placing them at the lowest position on the crank-spin. Put the wrench on from the back-wheel facing forward, and push down on the tool. You'll notice the left pedal is reverse-threaded (spins clockwise to loosen).
