Riveted sprockets are on cheap chainwheels and cannot be removed. You have to buy a triple-sprocket new with the rermovable screws, i.e. like a Deore front triple sprocket.

They just might be, depending on the brand and pedigree of the crankset. Lower-end bikes usually have rivetted, stamped or even single-piece cranksets, so they're not designed to be replaced individually.

Knocking sound coming from sprocket on new Mongoose Malus 26" only when pedaling. Do you have any suggestions?

Do you mean the chainwheel (front "sprocket") or the cog(s) (rear "sprocket"? If the former then crank bearing is out of adjustment, if the latter, then the freewheel/cassette may be bad or the hub bearings out of adjustment. As you can see there are too many possibilities to diagnose remotely. I would suggest you get the help of a bike co-op, a knowledgeable friend or a bike shop do determine the problem and fix.

The bar tip end sprocket on my Wild Thing looks like it's out of joint. I can see a little of the bearing and naturally the chain won't turn. Can this be fixed? I mean the sprocket is it removable?...

The sprocket noses are replaceable, they are held with three or four rivets, i have to say i have never had a great deal of sucess replacing them, the bearigs are uncaged and it is easy to lose one or turn one side ways as you push a new nose in, if you rivet the heads too tight the nose will not turn, rivet not enough and the bearings fall out, my best advise is to fit a replacment bar.

Replace bicycle chain

A BMX bike should have a master link. Look for one link that looks different from the rest. It should slide off the pins, which will allow the pins to be removed from the other side. Another style of master link requires both pins to be pushed towards each other to unclip the two pins on both sides of the chain simultaneously.

When you get a new chain, you will either have to ask the shop to shorten it to the correct length for you (keep the one you took off for reference) or buy a chain tool to remove the extra links.

Hi trying to re grease the pedal sprocket bearings on my Ross Rock Machine mountain bike. I got off the pedal arm on the right side but can't figure out how the left side comes off. The pedal arm looks...

Bottom brackets are sealed, removing the seal will have potential for damage. If it's making noise, replace it or better yet upgrade as a crankset. You'll have new crankarms, bottom bracket, chainrings with it. Unless you have the correct bicycle tools (not general automotive tools) you won't be able to pull your crank and even reach the seal for the bottom bracket.

Rear axle broken on Raleigh road bike, can i/ how do i replace it

Is it the axle in the hub or a skewer (quick release) that is broken? If it is the skewer, those can be replaced. If it is the hub (with a through-axle), then you would do best to buy a new wheel.

Wont change gears 12or3

There should be one or two limiting screws for the front derailleur that you can use to adjust how far out/in the derailleur moves to shift the chain over. You can ask a friend to lift the back end of the bike off the ground while you do the adjusting of these screws and then try shifting the gear while moving the peddles with your other hand.
