Angry Wipers

Hi,
newby here, I have inherited an E34 525TDSi 95N.
I have a prob with the o/s wiper linkage dropping off as it is worn out in the cups
I live East Mids, where do I start to look for a replacement, and or, are they repairable??
or,, is it a dealer back order??
many thanks in anticipation . t-t:

I have done a temporary repair. I drilled a hole through the ball on the motor side of the arm and then through the linkage.
A fine bolt and a nyloc nut seem to have done the trick for now. I am still on the look out for a new linkage though.
I will post on here if my temp plan fails. t-t

Thank you South26, I may well end up taking you up on the offer.
However, would the whole thing work backwards as I have a RHD ??
But thanks for the reply, you may be what I am looking for.
Sean.

I have no idea, I did not think about that, realoem.com could tell if they were the same part.

I looked up on realoem and it does not list the wiper tranny part number so I could not cross reference it to a left hand drive car. I was able to cross reference the wiper motors and that is the same, so still not sure if the wiper trannies are the same.
