The red cap on the pushrod's end was broken as shown below:

Anyone has the part number of it? Can I replace the cap only or the whole pushrod?

Thanks in advance.

Part number is 986-561-279-02 (same for driver and for passenger side) and no, they don't sell the cap only. The new rod arms now come with white plastic ball cups ("caps"), which are more durable and less prone to becoming brittle, etc. The rod arms are about $40 to $75 each depending on where you buy.

There is someone selling a replacement part for the ball cups only that is made of metal, but it is generally not recommended as the plastic ones are designed to break before some much more serious damage occurs to the top. See Tool Pants' recent post on these metal ball cups.

Regards, Maurice.
