Default Broken wiper hose attachment

Okay, anyone had the little plastic hose attachment for the wiper fluid lines break before? Stealership told me that it would require the entire cowl to be replaced...ugh. I was hoping someone else may have run into this problem and had a cheaper / simpler workaround to fixing this. It is the passenger'* side wiper attachment that is broken, the drivers side is fine. This is for a 2000 Bonneville SLE.

Any part #'* of what to get to fix it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!!
Jeremy

Hey thanks for the welcome! I've had my 2000 bonneville for about a year now, nice to find a friendly and informative forum such as this!! I'm in Fort Collins, Colorado, and currently it is cold and snowing outside! LOL.

Yeah, replacing the entire cowl didn't seem right, esp for a little plastic hose line attachment that looks quite easy to break off. Being that it is a cold and snowy state, most likely the past owner slammed their ice-scraper into the line and broke the attachment off. Hope someone here has a good suggestion for this. Cheap and creative solutions are always welcome!

i believe that the little hose attatchment IS part of the cowl assembly and cannot be replaced... im sure you could get creative and run a new hose, or put a t-fitting on the other side wiper hose
