    i just did mine yesterday, removed the motor and everything... looks good with no wiper haha.

    Pulled the plastic cap off the end and then unscrewed the nut.

    Mine was jammed on tight, had to be very careful and tap the metal washer fluid pipe in the middle of the nut with a hammer until the arm came off... Be very careful if you try this yourself though..

    i would just do away with it all together! looks so much better without it...
    I just have my rear window covered in rain-x so when its rains it just runs off.

    That looks good chrisash. I might pull mine off (pardon the expression) and source a smaller 4 ring badge to disguise the hole. And do away with the existing badge.
