P.S. this is making me sound like a complete dork, I normally fix most things pretty quick, I think its the large peice of curved glass thats making me nervous
The plastic cap has a long narrow tongue that passes through the wiper arm and out of the bottom.

If you look carefully under the arm on the right hand side (next to the wiper shaft) you will see the end of it just poking down.

Just push it up with your finger and the cap will pop out

It threw me for a while; Renault designing a component that can be easily removed without destroying it!

Have fun

P.S. you will get a replacement cap if you end up buying a new wiper arm.

P.P.S. Don't be put off by the glass, it's much stronger than it looks.
