Windscreen Wiper Linkage

This my first post...not even sure if it's in the right place...

My great little old ('99) Clio's only recurrent problem is winscreen wipers - seized up and stopped working ...basically pivot joint/bush on linkage seized up and popped off. I figured out why and have stripped and regreased all the pinions but when I put the wipers back on, the horizontal drive bar keeps popping off it's joint/bush onto the rocker arm at the very right hand side of the engine bay....

This is the second time I've had problems with it (2 years ago last)....ok the joint/bush is knackered...last time went to the breakers and got another linkage but not doing that again

Does anyone have any suggestions please?

(Took pictures of linkage but problems uploading)

Re: Windscreen Wiper Linkage

Don't know if any of these would fit but worth a look. Might depend on how worn your parts are.
