Hey guys the other day I was driving in the rain and my passenger side wiper had come off, I went out to check and I noticed the nut which holds the wiper arm to motor has snapped off. So I will need a complete new wiper motor set. I tried to take my old one out but the problem is I can't seem to figure out how the plastic cowl cover comes off, I have undone the plastic nuts and 2x torx screws at the front on engine bay. I tried lifting it up but it seems to be stuck on or glued, I don't want to break anything in case. Anyone know how it actually comes off without breaking anything?

It’s clipped in reply tightly take the other wiper arm off and pull the plastic from one corner hard you’ll feel like it’s going to break but that’s how it is. You never know tho in the cars past someone may have glued it down for some reason.

Be careful with the wiper arm bolts, one side is normal thread and the other side is left hand thread.

Loads of people break the left hand thread one.
