Default removing wiper arms and cowl

I am trying to get my cowl cover off. I've removed the half dozen or so screws that hold it down, but I need to know how to remove the wiper arms.

Does anyone know the easiest way to do this?

lift the arm a little bit and the lock plate can be pulled out, enoughf to release the arm

Thanks to ODgreen89on35s I got specific instructions.

There are several screws, but for the arms there is a tab on the side of the wiper arm closest to the windshield, near the cowl. Slide the pin toward the glass and the wiper arm slides right up.

Here is a pic of the tab...

exactly! there is a small tab just that you pry up a 1/4 of an inch with a flat blade screw driver, then gentle pull the wiper arm off the pivot point (its splined on the inside)
even better a pic while i was typing.

Honorable mention?

Bro, you are the one who gave me the info first!

That'd be a blue ribbon in my book!
