i need to adjust my wiper arms one spline on the shaft and cannot get the nut loosened without removing the black plastic cowl piece. so i got all the screws out and still could not the cowl loose enough for the wiper arm to slide out the slit.

if you were able to without removing the cowl please tell me how you did it

In addition to what Jim said about the screws under the triangle, the black plastic cowl trim has about half a dozen fingers that go below the lower edge of where the windshield sits. One must be careful when removing the trim or they will all break. They may break anyway. The wiper arms will not come off the shafts without using a small gear puller.
