interchangable parts
 
When growing up in the 50's The auto junk yard had a book of parts that would fit other car makes, is this still available ?

Here is why! The kid at the auto wash broke the rear window wiper arm a
complete accident, his boss said have it replaced and he will pay half and the kid the other. Well For one the car is a 2007 Volvo XC70 I went to the dealer and he quoated a price of $ 53.00 pluse $17.17 for a blade WoW!!
I went to the internet to price a used parts and they want $45.00 just the arm.
and I'm thinking wait all this is, Is a moterised arm that is about 16 " long
fitted onto a kneraled shaft and goes swish this way and swish that way.
I don't want to break the kids bank or get him fired.
any ideas out there ?
Or if you have a Volvo arm for a down to earth, decent price
let me know.
thanks Robut

you can find new a little cheaper on line, but by the time you factor in shipping you are better off with dealer price!

I don't know where you are located, but in many states it's illegal for the company to make the employee pay anything in a case like this. You might consider mentioning this to the kids boss, but then again they can probably fire him without cause as well....
