If you removed the nut off the top of the wiper arm, your next step is to slowly work with a "thin" (and I cant stress this enough) flat screw driver to work at budging the wiper arm base "up" off the wiper arm connector by pressing between the two. It might help to spray some WD40 down the thread area were you took the nut off to see if that helps.
