Windshield Wiper Replacement

1993 Winnebago Vectra trying to figure out how to remove the wiper blade, the only thing I can figure is to remove the little tiny nut that holds a pin in the middle of the blade. Would I be correct?
I searched pretty good on the internet and could not find anything good to show how its done.

I just replaced my blades 4 days ago in my 2002 jouney, I wouldn't replace the rubber inserts. just take the whole blade down to the auto store, O'riellys, pepboys etc. and get replacements. Mine were two 24 in.. I paid approx. 11-12 apiece. for the upgraded ones.. they started about 7.95. apiece,
simple single bolt in the middle replacement done and finished in about 5 minutes per blade.
No messing around trying to fish in a rubber replacement insert.
Probably not as same as yours, but unbolt the whole blade from the arm.

Thanks, I got the blades, I never get the inserts as they provide pressure and it never comes out right, I am with you ALWAYS replace the whole thing.
I just was not sure how to remove the blade from the arm. So it is that bolt with the little tiny nut in the center of the arm?

That is the way mine are, they have a little bolt with a nut that the wiper blade pivots on.

I got replacement 28 in. from Costco for around $8. each. They come with multi fastener but have a hole just off center for the bolt and nut. They seem to work fine.

Put something on the ground/gravel to catch that little nut when you drop it...

A bit of Loctite on that bolt is also a good idea.

That's funny, I don't know what makes them use a tiny nut like that.
