    I have a 90 New Yorker that I am trying to remove the wiper arms from, and I
    am having a rough time of it. I have lifted the cap on the end of the arm,
    and removed the hexnut holding it, but I can't seem to get the arm to
    dislodge. Is there another holding tab or something that I need to depress
    to get the arm to come off?

    Thanks in advance,
