No Problem! Look down on the Bottom of the Wiper Arm, wher it attaches and Swivels. There is a Small tab that comes off of the Upper Part of the Arm that looks like Two Front Teeth Sticking up just a Little. Take a Pair of Pliers and Pull this Tab Up Towards the Top of the Winshield to Release the Lock on the Arm. then take a Pair of Pliers with Tape on them so that you will not Scratch the Arm and Pull while you Wiggle the Arm right at the Swivel Pont and they will Come off. Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

I usually fix this by bending the arm as low as possible to the base part just make sure the arm doesnt hit the glass handle when it sweeps

one motor, remove the arm & hope the rotating asy isn't worn smooth. if it is you will have to remove both wiper arms & the front cowl then replace all the worn parts & reassemble the vehicle

Testimonial: "Very helpful knowing there is only one motor. The rotating asy is not that worn as the arm holds firm to it, the asy turns like it is not connected."
SOURCE: replace rear wiper arm
there is a cover at the base lift it up and then you have a nut. 10mm remove this and pull off the arm. sometime they get stuck and you will have to pry it up.
