    As subject line suggests, can't figure out how to separate the wiper blade/insert unit from the arm.

    Any ideas? TIA

    Well, I have a new blade, and it looks pretty normal, but I sure can't figure it out either. I've tried prying on all the little things under the arm, but I'll keep on it and advise when I am successful, Might have to break it to see how it fits!

    If it's similar to regular Prius, you grip the arm, then grip the wiper assembly, then rotate the wiper assembly gradually out 'till it resembles a letter T. Somewhere along that rotation you'll hear a click. Then it just pulls out of a slot. It's kind of a ball joint, you just snap out of.

    Thanks, and correct, except first you must pull up/off the "elbow" that covers the arm / drive pinion. It's a snap, once that elbow is removed, and the insert cannot be rotated or removed without doing so.

    Thanks, it is almost too simple. After lifting the clip off to allow the blade to pull away from the glass....it looks as if when you try to pull the blade toward you from the back, it wants to stop. Just keep pulling lightly and it pops right off! Too easy!

    Anyone has a video on how to do this? The narrative is fine but a vid tutorial is FTW.

    Although this is not a Prius, I think it will show the like method of removal...
