Maclaren Quest - removing back wheels?

Just wondering if anyone can help - we've a 16 month daughter and have so far managed with just a sling, so bit clueless about pushchairs.

A friend has just given us a Maclaren Quest buggy with a little bit of life still in it, but the back wheels are shot. I've located some new ones online, but cannot for the life of me work out how to get the old wheels off.

Can anyone talk me through it?

Thank you!

Not sure about the back ones but have removed front ones. Prised off middle bit-hubcap thing, used a screwdriver to bend the star washer and get it off and then axle slips out. Think that was it. You may need new star washers if this is the way the back wheels work as they do tend to be unusable again.
I did google it and some answers were on the net so back wheels may be too.
