I had the same problem and here is what I did. First remove the wiper arm from the motor using a 7/16 wrench. Once the arm is off remove the old bushing ( mine fell off completely). Next I moved the washer arm so it sticks out of the vent cover. Get the new bushing and line it up to the arm. I then put a socket ( I used 11/16)on the back of the arm and used a c clamp to push the bushing into the slotted hole. Back the clamp off and line up the drive arm with the hole in the bushing and retighten the clamp. Apply pressure until it seats completely.Once done you can replace arm to the motor. Test wipers to see if the bushing is going to stay seated. You are now ready to replace vent cover and cowl.
p.s. I have pictures that need to be resized before I can post

My wipers slipped off track of the motor, how do i fix this

That makes no sense

There is only 1 nut holding the wiper linkage
onto the wiper arm.

If you mean someone put the wiper arms on in the
wrong place,remove them & install where they should
be, when the motor is off & in the home pssition.

If you have to get to the linkage, remove the screws for
the metal & plastic vent to cowl grilles
