There is a little clip I don't remember if you pull up or push in but you will see. Then slide the old off then just side new on. Very easy.

i think he means the whole wiper itself. like the plastic peice too. if so, it's just one nut which is at the base of the wiper coverer by a little flap.

There should be a little clip that holds the wiper assembly to the arm. If it's on the bottom side of the end of the arm you usually push up on it.

What kind of wipers did you get?

Remove the cap and then there is a 10mm nut. You will have the stand the arm up and then gently rock the base off, the stud that the wiper arm goes on is nurled. Before you remove the old ones put a peoce of tape on the wind shield so you know where to line up the new wipers. Believe me this makes it much easier.

Even better is when you get asked... "How do your driove that thing?" or... "How do you turn?"

I take mine off for shows, can't keep them off all the time here in So Cal. Most of the time but not all the time.
