does any one know how to remove the rear wiper blade on a FL A45? mine is lifting at both ends so only cleaning around 7" and leaving my rear view camera seeing nothing but dirt..
i have the part number and place to get the blade(would like a longer one to be honest) but would like to know how to get the old pants one off...

That's a good idea and sometimes I do the same thing, I'd rather reply saying I don't know than nothing irrespective how silly the question may appear to be to one person to another it could seem like an enormous problem! 8-)
