      TCL CSI: Identify the car this wiper cover came from

      We had a suspected B&E / theft last night at the shop, and I happen to find this wiper cover in the debris.

      The only markings are 0855-4 and 39852.

      Looks like it's from a rear arm. All of the common Ford ones (Escape, Explorer, Edge, Focus, Fiesta, Expedition) are rounded in the cut out, not square like that one is... so it's not one of those. Goodluck.

      After looking at some pictures... I think it's from a Honda.

      Part number sequence appears to be Toyota although I cannot find a matching number.

      I got it.

      It's off a Nissan.
      It fits Quests, Muranos, and Leafs.

      It looks like some Subaru rear wiper covers. Which are likely from Nissan.

      No surprise that a Nissan driver is committing B&Es, considering their financial generosity.

      How do you know this isn't from some other car that has driven near your shop?

      Or was this the type of thing where the perp actually backed his/her car into your shop to break in, and you found the part laying in the debris?

      Another satisfying ID, although I would like more info on the break in.
