Car wash broke the rear wiper - looking for part number

Because the truck is black and I live in crappy Wisconsin, I wash it every other day. The other day one of the brushes caught it wrong and tore off the rear wiper. It looks like I will need to replace the wiper arm and the part that the arm attaches to. The wash has agreed to pay for it but I am having trouble ordering it.

www.realoem.com is down for now. So I went to www.bavauto.com

I found the p/n for the rear wiper arm (61 627 161 028) but have no idea what the p/n or even what the part that the arm connects to is called.
Any help?
Thanks
M

OT but, you take your X5M to the carwash 3+ times a week? Ouch for all the swirls you must have.

I would say more like 2x per week but...

Most of it is covered with 3M. Then twice a year it gets sent to detail to have them fix it as best as possible. It is my only option.

No help but why not just wash it yourself, once/week?

Note to self: do not consider used X5M from Wisconsin

I have an infant, a wife in medical residency and I work 70 hours a week. When I am not with my family or at work I would rather be racing, watching racing or thinking about racing than washing my cars. I used to be anal about washing my cars by hand. And still really enjoy it every once in a while. But my priorities shifted.

The X5M is awesome in WI. A foot of snow, snow tires and 550hp Black may have been a bad choice but I wash it and let someone else worry about fixing the swirls.

Hey, I`m not sure what is worse: a medical residency / a 70h plus work week / or an infant !! That is certainly going to keep you busy. How many more years of the residency is left?

Cheers,

9 months, 16 days and 4 hours. But who is counting

Wow, we really hijacked the crap out of this thread. But it is mine, so who cares.

I'l pay you $40 a month to wash my car. Then you can have a job and I can have a clean car. Works for me.

Now would someone answer the question so I don;t have to call the dealership and buy if from them
