Yes, they are to be had, sometimes very expensively.
Worth cleaning out (small drill-bit) the short steel tube in the spindle, which could be blocked with rust.

This works far better than the original design...

They do - go brittle and then snap when handled.
Just replace with small black HDPE pipe (commonly used for plant watering - try a garden centre), with a few strategic holes.
U-bend not needed if you do a mid-way tee.

Sadly recently gone out of stock. They may have more coming. Always worth a call. I thought the original was plastic or is memory playing tricks on me?

Yes, originally plastic

For now I have gone down the Mercedes sprinter jet that attaches to the wiper arm. In the pictures it looks good.
Arrives Tuesday, so will see then.

I wonder if you can 3D print one ...

Buy some mini plastic compressed air line, about 1/8" od, and drill some tiny holes in it, spaced about 1" apart. Its very cheap, you'll probably get a few feet from places like machine mart, or a supplier of compressed air equipment.
I still have a coil of the stuff from the eighties.
