How to remove windscreen wipers?
Not the blades. Thats easy as pie, im talking the whole wiper on an EL falcon.
There is a cover that just pops off, then there is a little nut that is easy enough to take off... Then what? It seems the thread the nut comes from is part of the wiper, which also has a shaft going to the motor... What am i missing?

wiggle wiggle wiggle then smack yourself in the teeth when it comes off. Or leave the nut on a bit.

Did the same thing on the weekend. Thought i would tidy up the wiper arms with a new respray. Ended up costing me $300 for a new windscreen.
Heres a tip for free. Don't use a screwdriver to try and pry the arm off with.
Doh...
