Question about Cycling
1. If it has quick release it will have 2 plastic levers one at each side of the wheel axle. Otherwise there will be 2 nuts.
2. If it has the levers, Pull them out from the wheel. This eases the pressure on the nuts holding the wheel on the bicycle. Turn them anti clockwise to loosen them further. The wheel will then come away from the bike frame. (If it doesn't have the quick release levers just loosen the 2 nuts with a spanner)
3. Before taking off the chain draw a diagram or take a photo of how it's setup on the derailleur so you'll know how to put it on again. Pull the derailleur upwards to release the pressure on the chain and you will be able to remove it from the wheel.
4. All that remains then is to pull the wheel out of the brake pads.

SOURCE: No Rear Quick Release
Some less expensive bikes do not come with quick release skewers. You just unscrew the bolts like you would any other using a wrench or socket. The will probably be really tight so you may need to bear down or use a cheater pipe. Unfortunately, these bolt on wheels tend to be solid axles and cannot take a quick release skewer. You would need to replace the wheel.
