Re: How do I remove the rear wiper for cleaning
I removed mine ( washer tube came off) from inside the hatch. If you do a search you should see a photo montage of what it all looks like.
In short, the internal rear cover pulls off having released the 4? screws and internal clips (take care as it is all quite brittle).
Once inside I think there are 3/4 bolts to take the motor off ( torx type I think) but obviously you need to disconnect the wiper arm from outside.
It is not a big job, just getting the cover off the hatch, and refitting and aligning it takes longer.
When in there make sure the washer tube is securely located into the washer arm shaft, they tend to work loose. Mine leaked slightly upon refitting so I gave it a wipe of 'setting' silicone.
As you will be working above your head, make sure you don't take out all the motor bolts then release the wiper arm: I did and dropped the motor, luckily it was OK!
