Yep correct a tab to slide out of the way then the arm comes straight off.

The tab is always seized and getting the arms off is usually hard if they have not come off in a while. They make pullers just to get the arms off.

Warning becareful of the windsheild. I once tried to take off an arm and took off the wiper blade. The arm slipped from my hand the spring slapped the arm back down to the windsheild and snap the window was cracked. I suggest putting a towel/cloth something soft on the window to protect it.

If it is too difficult to remove just give up before causeing damage. You can always mask off the area and paint the arm on the truck.

Yes, that is the tab, lift the arm up slightly then pull the tab out and it will come off with a bit of wiggling back n forth.
