    2006 A3 Rear Wiper Arm

    I've ordered a new wiper motor and know how to replace it having got the info from this excellent forum - not looking forward to pulling the trim off though. However, the existing wiper arm does not have a cap that can be flipped off to get at the retaining nut. Instead it appears to have two small sunken pins which are lateral to the spindle. Any idea how to remove the arm with this arrangement? Thanks.

    Hi. I hope I've done this correctly:
    http:// which shows the two pins (?) on topside of arm hub and: http:// which is the underside and which the pins do not go through. It looks as if the pins are in line with the centre of the spindle. I can't make head nor tail of the connection at the moment, other than think that they have to be punched/drilled out? Thanks.

    Thanks for that. I haven't had the car that long and had forgotten it had jets in the hub.
