Scenic Drivers Wiper

Never rains but it pours
Just went out to car, wiper fell off
Stub axle at end of wiper arm, under the plastic cap has popped out of bearing on the swing arm on the scuttle.
No bolt or thread on end of axle and can't see circlip groove
Hey ho, got it booked in at 8 for a clutch change tomorrow so I can see a quick bodge coming up, forecast of rain and more rain and no chance of getting parts this time of night

I assume a new arm is called for? Or a permanent Bodge?

Answered my own question after a little research on the forum and ebay . Permanant bodge.
Couple of bearings for three quid, I've already got nuts and bolts.
Out in a minute with a drill and pin punch and see if I can knock the stub axle out in situ to get me away tonight.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
