Look at the arm closely and you'll see a little tab sticking out where it is attached. Gently pry this out about a 1/4" and pull up on the wiper. Some wipers have an indexing key. Try not to lose it if you have em.

I also found it easier to pull the wiper to the locked position off the windshield (like you're cleaning the windshield), and then pull/hold the tab and pull the wiper off. Just my two cents.
