Hey everyone
My windshield wipers are in need of some fresh paint on them but I dont exactly know how to remove them in the first place. haha.

Can anyone tell me how to remove them?

Unlatch and open the hood.
(2) Lift the wiper arm far enough to raise the
wiper blade off of the glass and permit the wiper arm
latch plate to be pulled out to its holding position,
then release the arm (Fig. 5). The wiper arm and
blade will remain off the glass with the latch in this
position.
CAUTION: The use of a screwdriver or other prying
tool to remove a wiper arm may distort it. This distortion
could allow the arm to come off of the wiper
pivot during wiper operation, regardless of how
carefully it is reinstalled.
(3) Using a slight rocking motion, remove the
wiper arm pivot end from the wiper pivot

I just changed my blades the other day and man is that tough. I like pretty much everything about my truck but this is not one of them. It's really hard to hold the wiper arm up without hitting or scratching the arm or the hood. I had to use some WD-40 cause the blades assemble was stuck & wouldn't come off. I like the arms where you can flip them upright and not hit the hood. So much easier, but we don't have those.
