SOURCE: how to a remove the wiper arm
Most windshield wiper arms usually fail due to a loose nut or rusted and
worn out parts. Fixing this depends on how the wiper arm attaches to
the vehicle. Fixing wiper arm failure is usually as easy as tightening
a nut or replacing a worn out or rusted part.
Here is a step by step guide on fixing this issue.
Step1 Mark the existing wiper position on the windshield using a crayon. This will help you align the wiper arm correctly when you install a new one. Alternatively you can use the Trucks own markings. At the bottom center of the windshield you will see writing and three small dots. The wiper should rest on top of these dots. Step2 Follow the wiper arm down to where it connects with the Truck. You should find a hinged cap at the end. Step3 Lift this cap to reveal the nut and screw underneath. Step4 Use a wrench (or socket and ratchet) to loosen the nut. Step5 Remove the nut completely, leaving the screw stud exposed and the wiper arm free to be removed. Step6 Lift the arm straight up. Wiggle the arm and pull upwards at the same time until the arm slides free of the screw. If it seems stuck, push the arm back down and proceed to Step 7. Step7 Use a battery cable puller to pry the arm loose. Arrange so the large puller screw cap sits on top of the wiper arm screw. The outside arms have flat fingers that should be fitted underneath the wiper arm. Step8 Grasp the handle at the top of the puller and turn clockwise. The puller screw will push down on the wiper arm screw and simultaneously pull up on the wiper arm. A few slow turns should pop the wiper arm free.

After removing the nut turn the arm up and wiggle it back and forth while pulling it will come off.

SOURCE: replace the rear wiper arm shaft
There is a plastic cover that pops off at the pivot end of the wiper arm. pulling up on this with a hook of some kind from the furthest end should release it. Under it you will find a nut that holds the wiper arm to the shaft. It's quite common for the nut to come loose and the shaft spins without moving the arm. Try tightening this nut (with the ignition on, be sure the wiper motor is off, then turn off ignition and put the wiper arm in the parked position). This is a common problem if you've ever tried to turn on the wiper when it was frozen to the glass.
