windshield wiper wont go back down!?

i deided to replace my windshield wiper and i cant get the unit to go back down! as far as i was sure, all you had to do was push on it and it would go back down to being flush with the window. i've really muscled it but was afraid of breaking it. could anyone tell me if i'm doing something wrong?
