Need help finding a part

So the little plastic thing that attaches my wiper motor to the arm broke. It goes over the ball and I cannot find a replacement for the life of me. Anyone able to tell me what it is called and where to find it?

That's such an obscure piece I'd think you need to go to a junkyard and pull one or fab one up. I looked in my online parts shops and don't see it.

Dang, I think it's called a wiper linkage bushing. I can't find one for a yj though. Has anyone else figured out an alternative to this?

No junkyards near me have yj's, mostly honda civics and the like of

I would call Qtec or 4wd.com. They show the one for the CJ, check to see if its the same for YJs. Also have you tried the dealer?

For the CJ it should work on the wrangler as well. Pretty much everything from the windsheild back is all universal between them I believe.

Do you mean this? It is called the wiper motor seal.

Quadratec and the dealer told me I'd have to buy a new motor/ linkage if I wanted the bushing...

Unfortunately no

Booyah is right, got this a half hour ago and it worked. Not a perfect fit but close enough
