    confused Front Wiper loose?! how? why?

    My wife came home to the news that one of the wiper blades ( driver side ) was missing,.....great I thought some petty vandal with nothing better to do...etc, then I thought ugh she has been driving with the metal arm rubbing the windscreen!
    When I went out to look it had come off the arm somehow, and was under the lip bonnet. When I tried to put it back on it was very loose as though the clip was worn, or the end of the arm had opened?
    Can you buy the "j" clips or do you have to buy the whole replacement wiper?
    I have it secured with an elstic band at the moment , until tomorrow when I can swap it with the clip off the passenger side to prove it one way or the other.

    Any ideas?

    Thats the thing, it isnt cracked or snapped, thats why I am stumped, maybe the end of the arm has opened? maybe when someone yanked it off?

    the end of the arm should be parallel.. if it's opened into a vee then it's been bent..
