Super Easy Car Repair: Grab a Hammer!

Some car repairs or maintenance tasks are REALLY simple. So simple a Caveman could do it! So easy, I could do it! Here's one: 

After last month's autocross, I was back in the garage and checking out the car, when I noticed something was missing from one of the windshield wipers. A little plastic or rubber cover had gone missing, obviously due to  my extremely high speed auto-crossing skills! Or it just fell off! Well, OK, I'd like to say that I drive so fast that random bits of car just fall off all the time, but that's just not quite true. 

Something missing over that loose nut behind the wheel!
Hey, and a reflection of the Porsche flag in the hood of the car too!

Anyway, a quick search on line found the right part available at numerous sources, and I ordered two of them from our friends at FCP Euro up in Connecticut. A few days later they arrived, and I was able to install the missing piece easily. No need to Google a video on this one, and no need to consult the owner's manual. All you have to do is pop it on over the exposed nut that holds the wiper arm on to the car. OK, I also grabbed a soft mallet just to tap it once to make sure it was seated, so while I did have to use a tool, this is such an easy repair you can do it with your bare hands! 

BAM! Good as new, wiper blade back to normal.
