I had seen conflicting posts on people having trouble finding a puller that would work on the R8 wipers. I have had to pull off the inner plastic a few times and used a slide hammer puller the last times (which was a major pain!).

I am investigating a AC leak and the frunk has to come out so I took a shot with a cheap puller off Amazon. This worked perfectly. And was all of $12. So if you are in the market, this works great!

Fortuitous timing, thanks for the tip.

I actually ended up with the type mentioned by Its a good day:
6F04AA12-DF46-46AE-ADA0-84C6E8B84315-huge.jpg

- don't buy one of these if you have a 2017 R8 V10 Plus as you won't be able to remove the nearside wiper blade (UK car). The forks are nowhere near long enough to reach beneath the wiper.
The actual one I obtained was from Machine Mart:

unfortunately they didn't have the recommended type in stock, but do sell it so I will exchange.
Correct type:

Looks like you may be able to pull the wiper without removing the trunk surround too.
