'06/ wiper problem

Thebottom arm that controls the wipers has fallen off on the drivers side. The motor is fine and moves the arm . I loosened the cowel and put it back on. The only thing that holds it on is a metal bushing. When I put it on it didn't snap into place it just kind of sliped on. I ran the wipers and it fell off again.It just doesn't snap back on tight enough.Any suggestions?

Sounds like wiper linkage worn and needs replacement if it keeps popping off .

You're right. Of course you can't just buy the worn out bushing you need the whole linkage.

You can try a salvage yard or an online used parts outlet & maybe save some $$
