    lift em up off the window to take the tension out of the springs, spray a bit of wd40 on them and wiggle em about. depends how stuck on they are as to how much force is needed. you can get a special tool to remove them if they really arent budging

    as mentioned, undo the 13mm nut, hold the wiper up vertically and wiggle the arm around until it comes free.
