windshield wiper arm removal

I own a 1986 Dodge 1/2 ton pickup and need to remove the cowl grill. To do so I must remove the windshield wiper arms. There is no release lever visible on the wiper arms. I'm used to seeing a release lever on the arms that can simply be pryed out with a screwdriver. Then the wiper arm simply lifts off.

Is there a different type wiper arm that disconnects in a different manner(ie: squeezing the wiper arm with pliers, etc)???

i have only seen 3 different styles of wiper arms one wich bolts on and has a nut hidden under cap , one that has a small lever that pulls out when you lift the arm up off of the winshield the lever will slide out once slid out the arm will not spring back completly to the windshield and then the arm can be pulled off, and the only other style is just pressed on and has no release they just fit tight enough on the splines that there is no way they will fall off these are usually just pryed off.

Thanks bejay. Sounds like your 3rd option may be the kind I have.
