This is a quick tutorial showing how to remove the front wheel of a bike. ... Getting the lightly tightened other nut off shouldn't be aproblem.
If you can't adjust your brake position by using the adjustment screws you can loosen the wheel bolts and physically change the tires position to make it fit within the brakes. If that doesn't work take you bicycle into your local bike shop and have them check your rim alignment.
Should just loosen the nuts on each side of the axle. Assuming bicycle is upside down, you then have to lift the chain away from the sprocket as you slide it out of the slots of the frame that the axle fits in.
May have to loosen, adjust or remove the brake pads in order to slide the outer rim/tire through the brake caliper.
Take a picture first, so you can see how to deal with the rear derailer (sp?) when putting the wheel back on.
I did no find assembly instructions specific to this model. From what I see in pictures and descriptions it looks like a standard caliper brake on the front wheel. The knob/plug on the cable should fit into a groove and hole on the brake lever if the cable is slack enough to make the connection. You may have to loosen the cable tension nuts at the caliper and at the brake handle (labeled 1 & 2 in the instructions) to get enough slack.
Generic instructions are at:
See pages 21-23 for instructions about adjusting the brakes. You will have to do this after making the connection and it shows the various cable tension nuts that you can use to get enough slack in the cable to connect it. If you loosen the cable tension nuts (1&2) enough you should be able to remove the cable from the slot through the housing, expose the attachment slot in the brake handle by pressing it against the handlebar, insert the knob/plug into the hole and then work the cable back into the slot in the housing. Tighten up the tension nuts and make the final adjustments as described in the instructions.
