    No i don't think you are doing anything wrong. its probably seized like mine was...

    I ended up breaking mine off as it didn't want to come off and my rear wiper motor needed replacing anyway. you could try some more WD40 for a couple more days i suppose but from what i know most people end up breaking them off...
    Just watch out you dont damage your rear window when using that crow bar...

    yeah, spray lots of WD40, let it soak in for a while then wiggle the arm near the base and it should come off
