I think this is your 39th post.

Seriously, it sucks to have repeated problems. I hope the buy back goes well for you.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

I just had a passenger side nozzle failure on my 2011 GC. In looking at the failure, I found that the hose going to the nozzle was a little short and put some side load on the nozzle tip where the hose attached. I might also add that the water leaking down also caused a serv 4 WD error message. The short hose caused the failure and will probably occur again in time.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

I order the nozzles from the dealer parts dept. $12.00 each.
When Installed them I made sure I pull back the line just a little to relieve the nozzle from the side pull.
Now should be Ok, I hope for a long time.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Similar issue - not the actual nozzle though - but the hose that runs across the hood to the nozzle separated. Like it shrunk with the heat of the engine or something.
Do I hassle with going to the dealer etc etc.... NOPE - 3 foot section of 1/4 inch hard vacuum hose and fixed it in about 4 minutes for less than $6. This time cut it a little longer than needed.
Much less hassle and time than taking it to the dealership. Works great so far!

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

mine flew off while driving down the road. I didn't know what it was that hit the windshield at first I thought it was a bumblebee [you know same size and all], by the time I realized it was my darn nozzle I went back to look for it. Figured I could just put it back on. You know how many black things that size there are along the side of the road that has recently been asphalt re-surfaced? A LOT! I didn't find it. Now I have to pay $20 to replace it? That's crazy! I have owned three Jeeps and this is the first time one of those nozzles just FELL OFF! I wasn't going more than 45 mph [just getting up to road speed] and it wasn't even windy out. I have driven 80 mph on the interstate and it didn't fly off! Is this something that others have had?

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Don't put anything in your washer bottle other than water with maybe a splash of metho(alcohol) particulatly if you live in a hot dry climate. Detergents will dry and clog your nozzels. The pressure build-up may blown the hose off.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

This is interesting in the fact that others are having the same issue as myself. My passenger side nozzle "failed" too. I looked under the hood and found the tubing disconnected from the nozzle. It looked like the tip had broken off. I looked into the tubing and did not see the broken off bit so I jammed the tube on to what was left of the tip on the nozzle. Haven't had any problems yet but I'm going to check into a replacement part. I'd hate to have the problem come up in the middle of a snow/sleet storm that we get in Colorado. Thanks to every one who posted comments.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Good to know that there is other people with this issue. Since I replace them both I had no problems so far. But let see my car has 16 months and this these things fell apart in 10 months so let see if the replacements last a lifetime of just 10 months.

Figured it was worth a try. After installing them im not gonna lie. I think they are a better product than the Jeep parts. Very easy to install, no drilling or modifications are needed. Just pop off the old ones and put in the new ones. They spray pattern is able to be customized by moving the nozzle with a little tool that is supplied. Hope this helps! below is the part I bought.

Reviving an old thread here - but just wanted to thank all who posted on this topic and wta002 for the above post. My Jeep was stricken with the dreaded broken windshield nozzles and after a quick search of the Jeep Garage I purchased the replacements from Auto Zone & they work great.

I am getting tired of the poor quality of parts in this jeep.
There are cars out there that have 50 years and wiper nozzles still work. Why this Pieces of S___ is already broken.
Now I have to go back to the service area which suck here and spend one week with out a car just because of a broken wiper nozzle.
Yeezzz.
And I thought I was the only one. The same thing happened to me heading to work Friday evening, I thought no way could I be out of fluid and just like you the drivers side nozzle was broken at the hose connection. I took it to the closest dealer today and was out with the repair in under 30 minutes with no appointment under warranty.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

My passenger side nozzle also broke in December. It was during a 920 mile drive in slushy conditions. No spray on the right side and very little on the left because the open right side hose was not allowing any pressure to the remaining nozzle. I pulled off to the berm of the Interstate and discovered the broken nozzle. Pulled out the broken piece and put the hose on what was left of the nozzle barb. It has been holding ever since.
If this is happening a lot, it should be a safety-related recall.

Mine also broke on the passengers side few months ago. I thought they did it when doing the brake booster recall but guess not if it is breaking for others.
