Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

My passenger side nozzle stopped squirting. Seems the plastic hose connector broke off from the part that in mounted in the hood. It's been cold, but I use -20 washer solvent year round. Sound like a warranty service?

Git-er-done while you still have a warranty.
If you have extended warranty and have to pay 100 bucks then maybe do it yourself.

Common problem I think.... mine broke a few weeks back I was out of warranty on my '12 SRT8, but my dealer replaced it no charge and while replacing the passenger side one they broke the driver side too. They replaced both N/C.

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

Mine broke in the spring.
Poor design/part.
Got it done under warranty.
Good luck.

Exact same thing happened to me on my 2012 SRT8....mine was under warranty but it took me multiple trips to get it fixed.

Re: Windshield Washer Nozzle Broken

Unfortunately, mine wasn't under warranty. I found the plastic broken one extremely brittle. While installing the replacement the drivers side broke. That unit was extremely brittle as well. Wonder if it's the heat of the engine baking the nozzle unit? At least two new units are in place and functioning perfectly.
