I was driving home the other night after a marathon 8 hrs in the car with the wipers on 95% of that time when the left hand side wiper arm stopped but the right hand side kept moving. Checked it out the next day and found the linkage drive rod had popped off at the left hand side wiper. The rubber bush looks like it has worn and will hold it for another while.

Anybody seen this problem before. Car is 7 yr old with 96k on clock.

I've looked at the CD for the Parts Catalogue and it doesn't show a separate part for this bush. Anybody have a part number for this bush?
