3 Before removing the wiper arms it is worthwhile marking their parked position on the glass with a strip of masking tape as an aid to refitting. Raise the plastic nut cover.

4 Unscrew the nut which holds the arm to the pivot shaft and pull the arm from the splines.

Refitting
5 Refit by reversing the removal operations.
