windshield wiper arm removal

My arm on my 96 Southwind has buckled where it goes from a open at the bottom square arm to a 1/4 inch flat arm.I used duct tape and a screw driver to get it home, in the rain.Can we still get the arm , which seems very large compared to a car , and I guess it just rivits onto the rest of the wiper stuff.It has another smaller thin arm attached at he top where the blade goes.How do I get this arm off the stub that is on the body at the base of the windshield. I hope this discription makes sense to someone.

Remove the nuts that are on the bottom of the arm(s) fold the wiper arm out away from the windshield and wiggle it as you pry the assembly off the axle going through the front cap. Take it to a large truck, rv or NAPA parts store for replacement.
