    Avant rear wiper blade change

    And the dumb question of the day award goes to....

    I have the new blade, just how the hell do I get the old one off?
    Is it just a pull and tug affair or is there a clip somewhere that I am missing?

    Spanners, crow bar, explosives needed?

    Your not missing anything, look at your Audi handbook and its a "pull and tug" affair.
    That said I was scared about breaking mine and ended up having my Indy fit the wiper blade for me, nothings simple with these cars !

    I suppose you could say that it's a leap of faith to pull that hard on it when everything else around it is flexing and creaking but it does come off.
