    Look at the base of the wiper arm where it connects. There is a small clip, using your finger or small pliers, pull it outward and lift the base off the mount. Its a basic pop on and off but the clips sometimes are hard to pull. Sometimes they do get stuck on there, I had to use a towel and a small pry bar to lift mine off.

    It should look like this once its off, WITH the nut on it, I had mine off in this shot

    buggman Do not touch the trim!

    With mine, I flip the wiper arms up, that takes the tension off the clip thingie & you can pull it with your fingers.

    thanks for the help guys i popped them off now they are drying. the hard part will be putting them back on without scratching them.
