After searching the forum I came across the tech help http://202tech.mkosonen.com/howto/wiper.html and tried to follow the instructions. However I got as far as the second photo and was unable to prize off the large cover as shown. Should I use a screwdriver? I managed to prize off the cover in the first photo with my fingers but had no luck with the larger cover that covers the parts I need to lubricate.

I even have my white lithium grease spray ready ... :(

(NB: The photo shows a C-Class W202 and but my 190E is a W201)

Hi, it is a bit tricky to get that second cover off, I found that when I had to do it on my car, mine's a 124. It does need a bit of force, but like the instructions say - Remove the main cover piece by pulling out and up on the two release tabs (circled in the picture), if I can do it, Im sure you'll be able too. I just used my fingers.
