(Rover 25 2005)
So I came out of work last week to find my rear wiper had snapped on the joint where it sits on the wiper motor. I ordered a replacement on eBay but when it arrived the hole was too small to fit on the motor. My question is, dose the silver bit that in the image below, is the silver bit part of the broken arm and should come off? I don't want to start pulling stuff apart and break the motor if im not supposed too. If it is supposed to come off, what's the best way to get it off and if its not, where could I get the correct wiper arm? I've looked on eBay and they are all the same as the one i already brought and I called my local scrap yards and they have none.

The silver bit should be part of wiper arm, but it obviously detached from wiper arm and was left on the motor spindle. You need to remove it in order for new wiper arm to be mounted.
Went at it with a pair of pliers and after a struggle managed to get it off. The new arm I brought went on perfect. Thank you so much for your help.
