'71 Ranchero wiper arm removal

Can someone tell me how to remove the wiper arms on my '71 Ranchero?
I have a new drive to replace the old one, but I can't figure out how to get the wipers off.

Thanks

Underneath the blade where it attaches to the pivot is a spring loaded clip.

Press in, pull wiper blade off.

Under the dash, the wiper transmission has two arms and includes the left pivot (this is all ONE assembly). One arm attaches to the right pivot with a clip. The other arm attaches to the motor with another clip.

Got it - I guess my eyes are just starting to get bad enough where I couldn't really tell about the clip.
I used a screwdriver to push the clip, but I also had to use a claw hammer with a rag under it to "persuade" the wipers to come off. They probably hadn't been off the car in 35 years.
I got the drive in and used an "E" clip to anchor it to the wiper motor.
This will be nice - I have been using RAIN-X for a long time - I couldn't find a wiper drive with a good grommet that would attach to the motor.

Thanks for the help,
Beri
