At the base of the arm where it attaches to the drive stub, you should see a "L" tab made of stainless steel. that tab swings out, disengaging the arm. you then need to pull and wiggle the arm a bit to get it free from the stub. When you put it back on, make sure you swing the tab back in or the arm will fall off later.

SOURCE: how to remove 1996 Jeep Cherokee wiper arm

they make a special wiper arm tool used to remove the wiper arms. i have this tool and it is usually easier to do it the old fashioned way, remove the nut holding the wiper arm in place. grab a prybar and a hammer.pry on the arm of the wiper right below the nut you removed, tap on the stud to break the arm loose.. it might not come off right away but it will come you just have to work at it... make sure you are careful when prying around the window

Driver's side windshield wiper goes past window frame. How can this be repaired?

It could be a relatively easy fix or it could take some effort. First, try repositioning the wiper. By flipping up the end cap of the wiper arm and backing off the set screw that holds it on the wiper motor post. Remember, what position it was in by placing a piece of tape on the windshield. Pull the wiper arm off by pulling it off in line ith the angle of the wiper motor post. Take a close look at the splines of both the wiper blade arm and wiper motor. If either is damaged you will have to replace that component. Estimate the amount of adjustment you need and reinstall the wiper blade arm that amount in relationship to the piece of tape. Tighten set screw and try it.
If it still does it but less then repeat the process until you get it adjusted correctly. If there was no change thing it could be the wiper motor and that takes some effort to replace.

Where is the wiper motor located on a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited? Do I need to remove the cover at the bottom of the windshield? If so, how do I detach the wiper arms themselves to lift it out?

Yes you have to remove this cover. the arms have a clip thingy on the side I believe. if you genty pry the clip away from the arm then lift the arm a bit to hold the clip out near the base they should slip right off. this is true on a 94 yours should be the same.

How to remove 1996 Jeep Cherokee wiper arm so it can be repositioned on the windshield.

If you look where the arm connects to the shaft stub, you will see a small stainless steel tab that swings out. That tab engages a groove in the stub, holding it on. The arm may not come off easily right away if it's been on there a long time but if you rock it a bit and try to keep the end from going over to one side too much it will eventually come off. On severely corroded ones some wd40 will often help but try not to get it on the glass. It won't hurt anything but cause streaking if you leave it there. If you need to do any prying, make sure you use a rag or other protection to avoid scratching up the paint. The cowl is plastic so be careful not to crack it.
good luck

Rear wiper goes too slow and sometimes does not go at all

The motor is worn out. Remove the wiper arm and remove the interior trim panel to gain access. Once you see it, the rest of the procedure will be self-explanatory. I hope this helps.

1993 jeep cherokee country series--replace windshield wipers

Are trying to remove the blade or the arms?

The arms are released by holding the wiper blade fully extended away from the winshield and wiggle the arms off.

The blades are removed by a little tab where the blade hooks to the arm,using a small screwdriver push down on tab,and slide blade off arm but do not let arm slap windshield as it could crack it,I have seen people pull and the blades suddenly come off and the arm slaps down,yor can put a towel or cloth down where the arm sits against the windshield to prevent the possibilty of the arm slapping down.
