    You'll need to loosen the four pinch bolts on the lowers first. Then loosen/remove the end cap on the axle. You should be able to slide it right out after that.

    Do you mean you can't loosen the end cap (there's only one), or that you've got the end cap off and the axle won't slide out?

    Usually the fork comes with a thrangle wrench that helps you remove the thru axle. Did they send that?
