Default Replacing wipers on 96 SE

Can someone help me replace the wipers on my 96? The blades are done and I don't think the previous owner ever changed them. I purchased some 22" RainX wipers but I can't seem to get the old ones off. Any ideas?

If the existing wipers are run of the mill normal types, then they are very easy to get off.

These particular blades aren't J-hooks. There is a pin connecting the wiper blade to the arm. I haven't been able to locate a pin that would release the blade either. Please help.

Theres usually a piece you have to push to release the blade. I just replaced mine and i had to press down on a little piece to release it.

Can you send me an image? I took a small flathead screwdriver and tried to press anything that looked like a clip release. No luck.
