Need help finding a part

My windshield wipers went out in mid-swipe a few days ago. I took it to get fixed and the mechanic removed and replaced the wiper pivot and did a link assembly. He said this small, round, gold-colored thing had worn out and I needed another one for the driver arm to move. He showed me the part on my car, but I haven't been able to find a "center link junction" anywhere. The mechanic said I could try a junkyard, but I've seen similar parts online, just not for my vehicle. It's called a bushing or something, but I'm not sure.

On many vehicles small, little parts like bushings are not sold independently. The bushing may be included with the piece it's attached to.

I see. So that's what it's called...a bushing? Do you know the part the bushing would be attached to?

Long shot that you could find a generic bushing, but you would need the specs - outside diameter (OD), inside diameter (ID) and width. Figuring out those figures on a fairly small bushing would be tough. AS PD says, most often they come already installed on the next higher assembly (NHA).

Go back to the mechanic who did your repair originally and ask him to order the part(s) you need to complete your repair.

Good luck.
