How to remove wiper blades ?

Followed the User Manual and have the wipers up and pushed button. How to remove the blade ? Manual says "press at point B and remove the worn wiper blade(s)". Not clear how to remove it.

Hold the arm with your left hand and raise upward. Right hand grab towards the center of the mounting and slightly twist counterclockwise then pull it away from the arm. Assembly can be just as difficult just need to make sure you lift the arm away from the windscreen to allow the blade to droop.

Yes, that's part of the blade. I assume you have new ones? There's a thread about aftermarket blades on the newer cars. Do a search to figure out which brand fits.

The Bosch Icons are much easier to install than the OEM's which are also Bosch Manufacturer

I can get Bosh Icon wiper blades from advance auto parts. First I wanted to see if I can get the old ones off.
