Pretty much a PIA since the OE (which that aftermarket one you have is close to) were really ment to get the refills to replace the rubber. A way I've removed them over the years has been to bend it at the joint/pin mount to take some pressure off what locks it all together & take your time while being careful to slide it off.

A note to add is not all replacement arms fit properly on the outer passenger side of the hood with some other may rub the back edge. Not all but there are those out there that might.

To change the blades, I just use a flat head screwdriver and give it a light twist between the blade and the arm

If it is the old Trico style ones that have a hinge in the middle of the frame. You need to straighten it at the hinge. Hold the blade side against the inside of your arm with one end in your hand roll your hand in to push the other end into your inner arm straightening the wiper arm.

With your other hand push the wiper blade off when it is straight. It should slip off the pin or use something to gently pry it off.
