    You can use a small screwdriver to depress the spring/ball in the middle of the zerk fitting. It may just be stuck, and then will not need to be removed.
    There is nothing special about removing the zerk fitting, it may just be very tight. Try using a extension on your wrench.
    When you do get it to take grease, be prepared to use about 1 lb. That whole neck cavity is empty. The factory just smears some grease on the bearings when assembling.
