My Revolution has metal tubes that connect to the windshield wiper motor and then to the wipers. There is a ball joint on the wiper motor and on the wiper assembly. The tube that connects them has a plastic piece that snaps over the ball on each end. One is broken/missing and I am trying to find a replacement. Denso only lists the entire link assembly.

Back in the day when things were made of metal, it was and still is easy to get wiper linkage repair kits to fix those loose or broken sockets. In today's plastic world, i would bet a dollar you are going to have to buy the whole link. At least that's how it is in the automotive repair world in which I live.

I have a Freightliner Chassis and my wiper motor and related parts are from Cleavland Ignition. Look on the motor for Mfg.

I would try Grainger or McMaster-Carr. Both carry industrial components such as ball joints. Can't look it up by Freightliner part # though.

Not sure what chassis you have, but if it is a Ford, they available thru Dorman. I can get you the part # if you need it.

Looks very similar to what i put in my truck. Got them from Carquest. Think it was a pack of four for about 10 bucks. Might be worth a try. I know they were a LOT less than the complete linkage. Good luck.
