I need to remove the front wheel on my Powakaddy FX3 to replace the bearings which have disintegrated. I have removed the nut from the end of the bolt that runs through the middle of the wheel, and assume that I have to knock it through the wheel with a hammer, but it won't move. Am I missing a step? Do I need to remove the plastic casing around the assembly?

If the bearing has disintegrated that is probably where the problems lie.

the following is said without accepting responsibility for any damage
use a bigger hammer.

Does the bolt have any sort of retaining c clip washer?

Seriously, some gentle tapping and turning the wheel may free up any of the old bearing that might be causing the problem.
