Simple one for most. 1987 Mercedes Benz 420SEL. How do I remove the CAP over the nut that holds on the wiper arms? I can't pry off the plastic cover. Trick?

HiCustomer there is no trick it's just tight. Pry up from the back of the cap and it will hinge upwards.

Hi. I finally got them off. Actually, there IS a slight trick. There are two detents on the metal part and the plastic cover snaps into the two detents to keep the cover in place. I saw that on both as soon as I manhandled the two covers off. A little silicone grease will make it a whole lot easier the next time. Thanks.
