Default wiper problem

Hi all
New to this forum

My wife has a Astra 2008 and she broke her back wiper blade. She has an hatchback.

I have looked at it and played around with it but can somebody help me here. How do take the blade off to change it. I think it is one peace but not sure. Would be very nice to get some help. Thank you in advance

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

The blade is changed along with the bracket. It just snaps in and out of the wiper arm (where the blade is "hinged"). Push on the blade with your thumb just outside the end of the wiper arm, while supporting the arm. It takes some force to snap the blade in and out, so be careful.

FYI... the 3 door and 5 door have different blades so be sure you get the correct one. The 5-door is larger.

Here is a diagram of the parts. #1 is the wiper arm and #5 is the blade that you're removing. I just selected the part at the top to get to the diagram, so again, IDK if that's the right part for your car.
