Default Windshield washer wiper arm tubing

I noticed this winter that my windshield washer sprayer on the driver'* side wiper arm wasn't spraying like normal. I took a peek at the tubing and found a decent sized cut in the tubing that feeds the fluid up the wiper arm. My question is where can I this tubing? Anyone have any ideas? I put a piece of black duct tape on it for now and it'* doing the trick - mostly - except it looks pretty ghetto. Plus, me just knowing I have duct tape on my car makes me cringe.

Looks like to replace it I will have to pop off the wiper arm. Anything special in doing that?

Thanks in advance.

Your local parts store will have many varieties of tubing, cut to length. Just take a chunk of yours in with you, or use your memory.

Or spend mega bux at the dealer...

I feel your pain mine broke the fitting off right at the valance on the drivers side, I do have tubing that I got in one of those emergency pacs at Napa, but now I need a 90* fitting with locking tab for 1/8" tubing

Not a specialized part at all there, PDad... lol

I'm guessing the black tubing is 1/8th inch then.
