Windshield Washer exterior nipple

For lack of a better term, I'm calling the exterior projection of the windshield washer, to which attaches the flexible tubing that goes to the windshield wiper, a "nipple." This piece/projection starts at the base of the wiper mount about 1/4" outside diameter, and narrows to a 1/8" hard plastic tube to which the flexible tubing from the wiper slides onto. The entire assembly is one piece, and the rocker arm is the centermost portion of this assembly. Do I have you completely confused yet?

I broke the passenger side "nipple" when I banged it while cleaning the windshield with a squeegie.

Recently I had to have my windshield replaced. Apparently when they lowered the old windshield out, the other nipple was broken on the driver side wiper base assembly.

Using superglue, I reattached the passenger side, but like most plastics, you cannot successfully glue these parts back together. I maintained the hole through which the washer fluid is pushed by using a finishing nail which fit quite nicely. Superglue will glue this piece to fingers quite successfully, tho.

Does anyone know a replacement part? I'm pretty sure this is a commonly broken part, in that it is plastic, exposed, and relatively fragile.

I thought about placing 1/4" clear PVC tubing over the larger base part and fitting/gluing the flexible tubing inside the 1/4" tubing, but the base of the "Nipple" is just a shade smaller than 1/4" ID tubing and 1/8" is too small to fit over this base.

Has anyone had to deal with this problem? What did you do?

Bud,

Monaco has the replacement part. If they don't they will give you the OEM and part #. I have replaced a few weird little parts on my Dip and they have always had the part.

Probably similar to those on my Winnebago ...I had to buy a "nozzle kit" I think they called it ...had several of the little parts in it. I just used what I needed to get both back in good shape.

I bought a set of those for replacement at PPL motorhomes in Houston, they have an online catalog or you can call them. www.pplmotorhomes.com is web site.

Hope this helps, they also used to have them on the Monaco online store, but it is still closed.

Have a great day. Happy Trails Bert

Bud..Sacs told me tonight that you should go to Napa Auto Parts. Take the part number that is listed in the Wiper thread and have them pull it up on their screen.
You will find all the other parts that are associated with the wiper - including the nipple. They will have the part number listed with it. I have a feeling it may be less expensive there than at some of the other places...
