    I have a corsa 97 model and I'm having problems with the driver side
    wiper arm.
    I got a replacement in the local scrapyard but i'm having trouble
    removing the old broken one.I removed the black plastic cover,took off
    the screw but the arm still won't budge.

    Is there a special way to remove the old arm or is it a case of brute
    force until it comes off.I don't want to damage the motor it is
    connected to!

    What you can do is, once you have removed the plastic cap and nut is to
    swing the wiper arm so that is at right angles to the screen then gently
    move it back and forth in the direction of the pivot pin, so if the arm was
    originally in the park position then you will move it gently in a general
    direction from the bonnet to the windscreen, until it releases

    Soak it in WD40 for a while first - they do get very tight.
