Not sure how much help this is, but the vehicle manual has some rather odd description for how to change the wiper blade.

Basically you have to turn on the back wiper (ignition on, wiper stalk pulled back, etc), then cut the ignition switch when the wiper is half-way down the tailgate (ie close to vertical).

At this point it's possible to lift the wiper away from the glass and do any work necessary.

Obvious design, really... ;)

Thanks for the swift reply, but I got it wrong, its not the wiper, but the arm, sorted now, found that if the arm was pushed up under the 'skirt', the plastic nut-cover could be slid back to reveal the spline-nut, this was then tightened, all is well again!!

It is also a good idea to take the whole assy. out, take the motor and gears apart, and lubricate! On my car, it was extremely slow and finally stopped. Really pretty easy to take the whole thing out and do. Its important that it works right because it comes on in reverse automatically when front wipes are on.
