    My wiper cowl is cracked and broken where the two mounting screws attach. I have found a few on eBay but didn't know if anyone had any for sale or knew the best place(cheapest) to get one.

    Have you checked at a junk yard? Can't see any yard charging much for a piece of plastic.

    Just use some black plastic restore and it'll look great.

    Where do those two screws attach?

    My 2000 Yukon XL has a sort of friendly wiper cowl, and I'm wondering if that might be why?

    Like OP said, salvage would be cheaper, or dealer. Would not order, it would be in pieces when you got it. JMHO, good luck

    They are at each side, where it mounts to the truck. Drivers side attaches close to the hood hinge.

    I was working on my truck today, and I went looking for those screws, and I found that they were both broken:

    I fixed them both, real easy.

    A large washer on the passenger side:

    And a small washer on the driver side:

    Way cheaper (and a lot less work) than buying a replacement.

    I did that same thing. I also siliconed the screw hole before I threaded it back in.
