First, please make sure you need to. You don't if you're just changing the wiper blades. I have done this several times over the years with the 4 vans I've owned and found once that I didn't need to pull the wiper arms to get where I needed to go. If you find you must pull them, unscrew the bolt that holds them in place, which is under the plastic cover that will pop off with touch of a small screwdriver. Before you do anything else, mark the wiper arm at the point where it connects to the wiper shaft so you can get it lined up correctly. An alternative is to use some tape on the windshield itself to remind yourself how the blades lined up so you get them back on correctly and without having them move either too far or to little across the windshield. With that done, I have used a battery terminal puller positioned over a towel that will protect the plastic grill under the wiper arms - but try simply pulling the arm off the drive shaft with a forceful tug with bare hands, but odds are it will be frozen. Remember, 1) the drive shaft is at an angle in relation to the windshield, so pulling up will cause it to bind - you have to pull at a slight angle. and 2), grip the wiper arm close to the point where it goes on the shaft, if you pull from too far out you'll bend the arm. If you have to resort to the terminal puller, you need to line things up so you are pulling at a slight angle and put the "arms" of the terminal puller on the outside of the wiper arm and the little post in the middle on the wiper shaft and then turn the handle on the puller. Probably works better with a helper, though I've always done it solo - probably took me longer and created a permanent hatred for having to do this in the first place. Putting a little lube like WD40 on the shaft before you start doesn't hurt. I have also found that a few taps on the lower side of the wiper arm from a rubber mallet while I had tension applied from the terminal puller didn't hurt either. Good luck.

We just purchased a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country, and the wiper blades are out of sync and keep hitting. Is there some type of adjustment that can be made myself, or does this have to be done at the...

I assume it is out of warranty. Find a similar vehicle in a parking or used car lot and take a picture of its wipers assuming they are in the rest/off position. Then making sure your wiper switch is in the off position, remove the little caps at the base of the arms. Remove the nuts and gently lift the arms up and away from the vehicle, some rocking motion may be needed but do not pry on the glass. Spray some lithium grease on the little stub. Put the wiper arms back on as your picture shows them to be and snug down the nuts.

I am assuming there that someone pulled the arms off and put them back on wrong. If this does not fix the problem what you have there is that someone replaced the wiper motor and did not put the wiper transmission in the stop or rest position when he installed the new motor. So then you are going to have to get the wiper transmission out of the vehicle which could be a dealer task. You can get a repair manual on ebay or search on for someone's video of this process. Some can be done by owners, some require shops. If your blades are slapping around loose, perhaps the splines or serrations in the base of the arm are stripped and some replacement arms from a junkyard are in order. Take your old arms to the junkyard so they can find exact replacements and make sure they do not sell you another stripped set. This is generally caused by turning the wipers on while they are ice glued to the glass.

Sounds like they may have been frozen, (if in cold weather) or someone grabbed an arm when they were moving and cause that. Let wipers go to park position and observe which one is sticking up further, or perhaps one is down too far, and that should tell you which one to remove and re-position.
If that doesn't tell you, turn them on and see which one doesn't seem to go far enough over on swipe.
Lift cap at pivot point ( drive end) by windshield and remove nut, and pry slightly to pop arm off, then re-position and tighten nut. If unsure, a local mechanic shop should be able to do it in about 10 minutes max.
