Question about 1996 Mazda Protege
If your arm looks like a hook (which it should), once you find and press the little tab and then jiggle the wiper and firmly pull towards the open side of the arm hook, it should come loose. You will probably have to rotate the blade to the side to make space to clear the hook (sometimes the hook flexes the blade a bit which is ok). Be careful not to bend the arm but be firm.
FYI, All new replacement windshield wiper blades come with step-by-step, illustrated instructions.
Lastly, make sure you get not only the right length of replacement wiper, get the correct attachement. If you always use the application guide, you will get both: attachement and length. The application guides are at the store or you can go online to look them up (google something like lookup wiper size).
Hope this helps,

No removal of the arm is necessary. Typically, there will be a little lever on the wiper blade that will let the whole blade slide off the arm. Sometimes you'll have to hold it down and give it a little hit to make it slide off. The new one will slide on and click in.
