Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

Just a quick update from my post.

To access my washer pump (which is black in colour)I took the grill and bumper off. I disconnected the pump and underneath it is a white washer. Once you pick up the washer, all of the washer fluid will gush out. On the washer is a small filter and this was also covered in this slimey sludgey stuff.

I took it out, gave it a clean up and we are now back in action!

I don't think you have to disassemble the dash. See attached PDF file for the rear hose routing, this shows you the hose section that would need to be replaced as well as the exact routing on both sides of the firewall. You could also cut the hose at a point in the passenger compartment and reconnect with an in-line connector (instead of replacing all of the hose to the a-pillar.)

The grille/bumper does not have to be removed - the washer pump and/or resevoir can be accessed and removed by partially taking off the wheelwell splash shield.

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

Front windshield washer not spraying fluid. Rear wipers and fluid work fine. The wipers in the front move, just no fluid. Can i chalk it up to a blockage in the line to the front?

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

sometimes its as easy fix as the rubber line which holds the fluid just detached from the connection under the hood by the windshield. try to look for that first before you go taking things off. follow the line, make sure all the rubber hoses are attached.

this has happened to me in everyone of my jeeps. not my SRT yet..

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

I've seen some people clearing the lines with a pressure washer. I personally wouldn't do it, sounds a bit dangerous. I just use neat washer fluid (like what BMW use). Bacteria in the water can cause the lines to clog up over time.

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

I know that this is an old thread but I just wanted to give a BIG THANKS for the diagrams. I have been dealing with this rear washer issue for some time and this was the only place that really offered help. I will be tearing into it this evening and will see what I can come up with.

Thanks again,
Shaun

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

Thanks to the diagram I was able to tear into it and isolate my issue.

It seems that the hose is blocked somewhere in the headliner. I was able to take of the A pillar grab handle and disconnect the hose where it meets at that spot and it flows up to that point.

Is there an easy way to change the hose out that is routed above the headliner?

Milous, do you have any diagram/info on how to partially remove the wheelwell splash sheild? I was involved in a collission (4 cars in total) two days ago and it seems that my washer reservoir cracked somewhere from the impact with the car in front of me. Another thing that broke was plastic base behind the front bumper's licence plate area.....thanks

Re: Wiper fluid spray not working

so do you remove the hoses from white splitter or does the splitter come off the pump? I've kind of played around with both, and feels like the hoses are probably the ones that are removed, but they are not budging and I don't want to break anything more than stuff is already broken.


any help appreciated.

The hoses are then secured by three plastic push-in type retainers (3) to the left side sheet metal within the engine compartment to the left side of the dash panel (11).

From the dash panel, the two washer hoses or tubes are routed separately. The front hose or tube is routed up toward the hood (10), while the rear hose or tube is routed through a grommet and a hole (5) in the dash panel into the passenger compartment. The front hose or tube is secured to the left side of the inner hood panel reinforcement by a plastic push-in type retainer (7). Two plastic in-line fittings and a molded rubber tee (8) provide the take out for the left washer nozzle, and a plastic in-line fitting with a molded rubber elbow (9) terminate and connect the front hose or tube at the right washer nozzle.
Milous or anyone who may know,

The nipple descending down from the nozzle on the driver side, has broken off inside of the plastic in-line fitting with a molded rubber elbow (8). I noticed this when I attempted to use my windshield wiper fluid and only the right side worked. I opened the hood and the insulation was sopping wet. I attempted to tape it back to the nipple but it wont stay.

Does anyone know how to fix and/or what parts I may need if i need to replace? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
