Windshield wiper arm removal?

I hope this is in the right forum? I hate to sound like a noob, but how do you remove the windshield wiper arms on a 1967 El Camino?

If you are talking about the complete arm, Well what i do i figure it's the same as my 67 camaro, I lift the arm up and take a large flat head screw driver or something similar and place it under where it sits and slides down on the grooves and apply a little pressure and twist the flat head while lifting, Always works for me anyway. Just be careful not to scratch the paint might want to place a rag down just to be safe, Or someone else might have a better way.JMO

Is there a pair of little holes in the side of the arm?......If so, put a nail or drill bit through there while holding the arm off the windshield. With the pin in there, it holds the arm up, so you can wiggle it off the spline.......some of them also have a little spring tab under the arm, that you push back while wiggling it.

Hey Max, I just went out and looked at my 67 camaro which should be the same, Look where the arm slides down on the shaft, if you look you should see a small tab on the underside of the wiper arm. take a small screwdriver and work the tab down and lift the arm off. If you need i will go try to take a pic for you just let me know. This is the tab poncho is talking about.
