Like an idiot I opened my hood to dry the engine bay after washing my car last night forgetting that I had my wiper blades up to dry the windshield. The hood hit the blades, and popped the linkage arm for the passenger wiper off the motor assembly. I read the DIY post on here and got under the hood to the assembly, but does the whole linkage need to be replaced or is there a way to pop the arm back on???

Its the point where the white cap is in the picture.

Thanks:)

Yet to deal with this on my Saab but on my other cars you can just pop them back together. There is usually a lip in the arm that clips onto the motor or linkage and if that is busted then the arm. My old car I had to use a C clamp to tighten and pop the two back together. Not sure if the Saab needs that much pressure. Take a look at the arm and see if you broke anything.

The arm looks fine, but I dont see any way that it clamps back together??

I can't really see in the picture but usually its a ball and socket. The arms need to attach onto the motor. I just can't tell in the picture what is what. I can't tell if the arm sticking out down to the right is what the ball needs to attach to.
