Question Wiper arms removal

I need to remove the wiper arms to reposition them but I can`t found out how to remove them. These type of wiper arms have no screw/nut so how can I do that? I'm visual and I cannot found some pictures or videos to explain.

I finally found out where the latch is and how to remove them. I feel stupid haha... but I cannot change the wiper arms position because it have a key path and you can only insert the arms in one position. My main problem is when the passenger wiper go to his original position, it go too far down and hit the plastic. In this way, the wiper cannot be warmed by the wind-shield heat in the winter and it always frozen. Can someone already fix this problem ?

there has got to be something wrong with your wiper arm. there is no way it should be going all the way down to the plastic. possibly could be bent.

figured it out! I checked some pictures of wiper arms for my truck and they invert mines. Maybe they removed them while ago and they inverted them on the reinstall. The arms with two bent go on the driver side and the other one, with one bent, go to the passenger side. I will fix this tonight!
