Default A6 avant rear wiper

the wiper blade on my car parks in the wrong place ...on the bodywork!
I presume when the main agent fixed the washer they put it on wrong so I want to move it , however I have tried pulling it off the splines but can't move it ...am afraid to break it by using brute force as it is mainly plastic
can't see anything holding it on except a push fit
any advice ?

Use a puller, or if you haven't got one, leave the nut on loosely and use a pair of mole grips behind the arm onto the nut

The rear one can be tough to remove because of all the dirt it's subjected too. Had to cut mine to get it off the spline, I was replacing so wasn't a problem to cut it
