Wiper Nozzle problems.

Ok, Another problem with my WK2.
With only 8,000 miles on it, one of the wiper nozzle in the hood will not spray like before.
So I open the hood and check for anything wrong, guess what??? is broken from the bottom and spraying all over the motor.
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.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Why would you be without a car for a week? You know you can still drive it.

How about you bring it in when they get the nozzle, have a cup of coffee and read a magazine. Then, take the car home.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

OP, if you are stuck without timely service in PR, you may try a DIY. Take a look at the underneath portion of the nozzle, beneath the hood. The upper portion and lower base clip together from the underside via pinch clips. Your nozzle just may be loose and need to be reseated. Good luck.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

It is broken, I said in my first post. If I dont have to take the car to service I will always try to fix myself because i am very handy. But is the fact that this is a brand new car and I am having the nozzle change, i have taken my car 5 times already to change the rear shocks in 8,000 miles and every time I loose a week waiting for parts and service.
Look for my other threads here. Tired of Jeep, will sell as soon as possible. It is crap, I have owned a lot of cars and never had this problems before, I tried for the first times an american car and you get this problems at 8,000 miles ridiculous.
Not to mention that they broke my cargo cover in one of those visits, they clean the engine with I dont know what and instead of looking clean it looks all like they clean it with degreaser and did not even wipe clean the engine parts. They use all of my gas testing the parts they have change and never fill back up. Crap, crap and crap.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

Sorry to hear of your problems, must be very disappointing. Any new car, from anywhere on the globe, can have a problem from the factory. Doesn't matter who built it, failures occur. That's why auto dealers have repair facilities and honor warranties. That said, I think your biggest problem here is the dealer's shop. Do you have an alternative for repairs? It doesn't sound like the folks you're dealing with are very good. If you can't get good service from American dealers in Puerto Rico, then you should probably be driving something else. That's a shame, because the WK2 is a fine vehicle that most owners are very happy to own. Also, does Puerto Rico have lemon laws? If so, maybe you should look into recourse with them. Good luck to you, and I hope you can get your problems resolved.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

I had a broken passenger side nozzle last week.
Leaked all over the engine.
Dealer had one in stock and took ten minutes to repair.
Not a big deal but I have never had this happen on other cars Ive owned.
Cheers

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

My Nozzels broke the other day. Bottom tube connectors basically deteriorated. pretty sure my toothbrush has higher grade plastic. But any ways, looks at getting the jeep replacement but they had to order it. Decided I would go to Auto zone and see if they had them. They had a pair OEM nozzels for 10 bucks. 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.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

I order one set of Nozzles to make sure I have a spare just in case they both break eventually.
I have temporarily fix it with a dab of epoxy mix until I get the parts.

Re: Wiper Nozzle problems.

I have the same problem with the nozzle, passenger side, I jury rigged it, but my air suspension has failed 6 times. My beautiful Summit is a LEMON. Waiting to hear on a re-purchase from Chrysler Corporate. Probably going to be my first and last post.
