Some of them use 15mm wrench. Some require a thin 15 mm wrench. Some can be done with a 8mm allen wrench.

Right side pedal is standard thread. Righty-tighty Lefty-loosey.


Left side pedal is left hand (reversed) thread. This means "Righty-loosey" "Lefty-Tighty"

Hope that helps.

Right on gmats!
I just wanted to add that the allen wrench would be used on the backside of the arm, if that's not immediately obvious.
AND
Be sure to use some anti-seize on the threads when reinstalling! (or some grease)

Remember backwards is forward

Remember if you are using the allen wrench on the inside of the pedal; the direction is oppisite as if you were using the wrench

to remove pedals, i usually just have the wrench handle pointing up and turn towards the chainstay, not really sure which side is reverse thread.
