From my '96 ZJ FSM.

CAUTION: The use of a screwdriver or other prying
tool to remove a wiper arm may distort it. This distortion
could allow the arm to come off of the pivot
shaft, regardless of how carefully it is installed.
(1) Open the vehicleís hood.
(2) Lift the wiper arm to permit the latch to be
pulled out to its holding position, then release the
arm (Fig. 5). The arm will remain off the windshield
with the latch in this position.
(3) Remove the arm from the pivot using a rocking
motion.
(4) Install the arm and blade with the wiper motor
in the Park position. See the Wiper Arm Installation
illustration (Fig. 6). Mount the arms on the pivot
shafts so that the distance from the lower edge of the
wiper arm tip to the upper edge of the lower windshield
moulding is:
≤ 25 - 52 mm (0.98 - 2.04 inch) on the driverís side
≤ 33 - 62 mm (1.29 - 2.44 inch) on the passengerís
side.
(5) Lift the wiper arm away from the windshield
slightly to relieve the spring tension on the locking
latch. Push the latch into the locked position and
slowly release the arm until the wiper blade rests on
the windshield.
(6) Operate the wipers with the windshield glass
wet, then turn the wiper switch to the Off position.
Check for the correct wiper arm positioning and readjust
if required.

They are a PITA as they have limited access. A tiny puller might work. Good luck trying to rock them back & forth. They are usually stuck on like glue!
