    Windshield wiper problem

    My driver side windshield wiper stopped working tonight. I discovered that the linkage separated at the wiper arm. Do I need to replace the entire linkage or is the bushing replaceable?

    The bushing is technically replaceable, the issue will be sourcing one. The linkage is like $25 online.

    It's a picture showing the wiper transmission linkage popped off the motor arm. The plastic bushing wears or cracks and pops off the ball stud. There are bushing repair kits available, but you can also get the whole linkage for about $25 aftermarket.

    It's a crappy design. The cup/bushing has very little purchase on the ball. I did see someone who drilled then bolted the cup onto the ball.

    Thanks for the input! Turns out the other side was rotted as well so I replaced the whole linkage.

    Simply drill a hole thru it and bolt together with a nylock nut, so it is not real tight
