Default Rear wiper - disassembly HALP!

Aerg. So the local car forums don't have much on this topic...having a stab in the dark that someone here will know.

I've got a 1990 BF5 Legacy (JDM 2.0L turbo wagon). The rear wiper has a lovely habit of pumping water into the inside of the tailgate instead of out onto the window, so I pulled it apart and had a look. The hose has come away completely, but the nib is the bit that's given way and snapped off inside the piping So I'm trying to unbolt the b@stard. There's a bit of day left so I wanna pick up a spare from pick-a-part and get it in.

All is going well except I can't get the [BLEEP]ing wiper off!! There was a 10mm nut on the outside that came off, and I can see a LARGE nut underneath the wiper arm, but getting that off...omfg. Question: does the wiper arm simply screw off the thread sitting there, or is there more to it? (And before anyone asks, yes, I have teh bewbs...and don't often get my hands dirty...hence asking silly questions.) I have been trying to unscrew it, but I'm not sure whether it's rusted solid or simply doesn't come free that way.

*is THIS CLOSE to beating the thing with a fscking hammer*

RIGHT time to answer my own question...

Wiper IS meant to simply twist/screw off. Just came back from disassembling another hatch at Pick-A-Part. Have an entire new unit for...get this... $17. I kid you not. Bit scuffed but actually WORKS!

Looks like I CAN hit the old one with a hammer
