Rant alert!!!
The tip of the wiper bow had broken off. I reshaped it around the bolt that is attached to the wire. I should have added a couple of extra washers to make up for any lost metal.
It rained yesterday. I can't tell you in enough words how I'd like to meet the guy who designed the fiddle rig. It came apart at 65mph in the dark.

"Fixed" it again. Funny how the pictures in all the manuals don't show AC getting in the way. LOL

I had a home built "hot rod" coaster car, when I was 10, that used the same design for steering. It had more than one loop.

If you don't use a new cable it will come apart again.

More likely than not when it's raining, too!!! :lol:
