Default help! 01 wiper arm mounting keys

Need help w/ problem caused by careless windshield replacement firm. They lost the little keys that keep wiper arms locked in place. They're proving hopeless. I can't find such parts hereabouts. Didn't know about problem till we lost a whole arm in recent snowstorm...a bit scary. Now I know what's missing...but cannot locate replacements here (No. Colorado).
ANY help on this will be much appreciated. We love this van and intend(ed) to keep it another long time. But without reliable wipers, it's a questionable proposition.
Thanks in advance.

Not sure what part exactly you need, but most aftermarket wipers come with the clip to snap the wiper blades to the wiper arm. Do you have a picture of what you need?

Default help! 01 wiper arm mounting keys

No pix possible: the parts are missing. I refer to the woodruff key-like metal bits that fit into the keyways in the post (from the wiper mechanism beneath the cowl) and inside the head of the wiper arm. Each wiper requires a key to lock the arm onto the post. An odd system, but it worked till the windshield guys lost them unwittingly. Without these keys, the wiper arms remain loose and will easily come off. Nissan no longer has such parts, nor does Ford (Quest used for Villager).
