The long yellow arm is cracked on one end where it attaches to the slide. It is this slide in the purple/red colors. Looks like no replacement part is available. I hate to throw it away as the slide is great otherwise. Thanks!

may have broke the arm that attaches the arm to the wiper motor. check to see if the arm fell off. there a plastic grommet that holds the arm to the motor this may have cracked and the arm fell off. hope this helps
It could be the hose. Unless your car has ever been hit on that side, the reservoir usually outlasts the hoses. You can easily test the hose. Unclamp it from the reservoir bottle when the coolant is not hot, plug the end with your finger and hold the hose down lower than the other end that is attached to the radiator fill neck. Look for leaks.
To check for cracks in the reservoir, it's easiest to place a flashlight inside the bottle top and look at the outside of the bottle...if liquid can get out then light can too.
one temporary repair i have done is to take arm off put 2 pieces of paper on top of pivot push arm back on hard this works for how long i am not sure but it has been 5 months since customer has complained ( afree repair ) good luck!!!! other wise a gm dealer is the other option
you can take it to a repair place, the screws on the bottom are not designed for the everyday person to open them. a special screwdriver is used. But I do think if it is not holding water the tank has been cracked somewhere. I would be cutting the end of the cord and binning it.
I would recommend a Phillips Steam iron GC4430. It is comfortable to hold and light enough that you hand/wrist/arm doesn't get sore. Price is quite good, under 200. You can also purchase extra warranty on this item.
There are 4 points of attachment for the front bumper. The nose has two long bolts that go through each of the 2 horizontal shock absorbers and screw into clips attached to the bumper reinforcement. You can access each bolt head with a long socket extension inserted in front of the fog lights.
The remaining two points of attachment are on the side of each of the front fenders, they are plastic guides that meet up with groves on the inside of the bumber sides, as you slide the bumper onto the reinforcement bumper, you line up the bumper groves with these plastic fender-mounted guides and you will reach a point where the bumper snaps in place.
I suspect the driver side bumper sliped out of the inner grove (best caes scenario), or the bumper goves cracked or the plastic fender-mounted guide cracked.
Get under the car to take a look, alternatively undo the 2 front nose bolts and remove the bumper, actually not a big job, and you will then be able to assess the problem.
The problem with this wiper blade set up is the slides get jammed up w/ crude. You should lubricate the slides and they should slide off. Then carfully lift the arm and remove the blade. Warning you should never leave the arm in the upright position. Windshields get cracked this way. Also note the pivit points the blades attach too. These will normally sieze up and cause clearing issues even with new blades. Lubricate these pivit points and use a pair of channel locks to move it back and forth until it will go 360 degrees with your fingers. Install is in reverse order of removal.
Disconnect fuel tank hose at the fuel pump, and plug the hose with a bolt or wooden dowel to keep any fuel from flowing out wires. Check the hose and if it is frayed or cracked, replace it with new fuel line hose.
Disconnect the outlet line to the carburetor. Use a wrench on the fuel pump fitting and another on the line nut.
Remove the two attaching bolts and remove the old fuel pump. Clean off any old gasket material from the mounting surface of the engine.
Apply a coat of gasket sealer on both sides of the new gasket. Put the attaching bolts through the new pump and slip the gasket over the bolts.
Install the new pump on the engine. Make sure that the rocker arm in the pump is against the eccentric inside the engine, or that the push rod is correctly installed in both the engine and the fuel pump. If the push rod slides out, you can pack it with some heavy grease to hold it in place while you install the pump.
Attach the fuel outlet line that runs to the carburetor. If it's difficult to connect, remove the other end of the line from the carburetor. Connect the line to the fuel pump, and then reattach the other end to the carburetor. Use a wrench to hold the fuel pump fitting and tighten the line nut with another wrench.
Attach the fuel inlet hose from the gas tank, and the vapor return hose (if the vehicle is equipped with one). Tighten all clamps.
Reconnect the battery ground cable, start the vehicle and check for leaks.
