Remove the arm.
Open the boot, remove the black plastic cover, theres 3 bolts holding the motor to the lid, undo them.
Disconect the electric connector.
Remove the water hose, bung something in the end of it and use zip ties and silicone sealant to prevent water leaking.
Fill the hole with a rubber plug from Halfords

^^^^ as alex has said but bend the water tube and cable tie it with a bend in it this will stop any water coming through.. I used the small black cap from a bic pen and used that to plug my old one!

Was that on the Mini Jon? I didn't know you could just fold the pipe over, i'll do that when I take mine off, I was going to wait until the weather gets a bit better, because after a few trips up and down the motorway I can't see anything out of the back...
