Hi Guys an Gals...

On changing the rear wiper I noticed that pulling up the wiper arm, the wiper blade just fell out... After looking closer, it appears one of the sides of the retaining clip has snapped off, and now its not gripping onto the blade

It can however just sit on top and still press the blade into the window, but I really want to sort it so that it clips once again! Question is Do I have to replace the full wiper arm, at a cost of 25 + or can you just replace the retaining clip itself?

Any advice is appreciated!

If I am right, the MKI is a metal hook? This one is the plastic clip, myself I cant see anything in particular that can be swapped... ?
