1990 wiper cover help please

I was told I could remove the oval (more-or-less) cover from the windshield wiper arm of my 1990 300CE, but how to do it is not obvious.
With a small mirror I see two holes on each side of the bottom of the assembly, but how to release the cover (if possible) is not evident.
Any help appreciated.
