Wiper arm question

My passenger side wiper arm where it connects onto the spline shaft has a lock thats worn and if I pull the wiper it will come off in my hand, is there any way to adjust the lock tab or do I need a whole new arm?
It looks to me like I can bend those little tabs, under it where it slides back and forth on , but I don't know if they are plastic or metal and
taking that part off will be a pain.

I just got new arms for 13.99 at the auto parts store. It's easier that way

Yea but I like working on stuff besides my curiosity is killing me, I just don't want to break it finding out and if it can be fixed I see no point in a trip to Advance.

I'll get one if I can, sorry I can't post one right now but I have a Blackberry so getting that thing to work long enough for a picture is almost impossible.
