Tool to remove rear wiper arm?

I'm trying to remove the wiper arm only temporary so that I can wrap the doors with 3m Wrap. I flipped the plastic cap off my 2011 Clubman S and removed the 13mm bolt. I tried moving the arm back and forth and could not remove the arm. Any suggestions?

I removed mine to install the sports stripes last summer. Once the nut is completely removed, just pull on the arm. It will slide out

If it's like the gen 1 MINIs, it's a tight fit. A puller or some other way to put
pressure on the shaft while pulling or prying on the arm will help.

Hope you figured it out by now! I recently watched someone take mine off, they flipped the cap and removed the bolt as you said... then had to wiggle and pull and gently pry with a large flat head to get the thing off.

Thanks guys. I did figure it out. After removing the nut, I than pulled back and fourth and than it came out of the groves. It was easy and thank goodness I didn't need to buy any tools.

I wanted to remove the rear door handles but looks impossible so I'm scrapping that idea. Just wanted to wrap the doors with the 3m stuff. Oh well, at least I learned how to remove the wiper blades.

the rear handles aren't terrible, you just need to pull some of the interior bits off
