Wiper fluid spray not working
 
Well, my fluid tank is full, but I pull the lever and I get nothing... is there a fuse for this (too lazy to go check the manual)? If not, any ideas on what could be causing my problem?

Do you hear the pump working?

Yup, pump is working... it's almost like it's clogged... is that a possibility?

Yeah pop the line off the nozzle and try pumping fluid just make sure it doesn't spray everywhere. If water flows then the problem is in the nozzle.

huh!?

Where is this line? I'm guessing just after the reservoir tank...?

Pop the hood and remove the hose from under the hood that goes to the nozzle on your hood and see if the h20 flows out the hose. If it does then the system is fine, just your nozzles on the hood could be clogged.

Alrighty, I pulled the hose at the hood/nozzle and I'm barely getting any drip... so I tested the rear wiper spray and I also get nothing... so, the tank has both hoses (for front/rear) coming off the reservoir through a little separator thingy, my guess is that is clogged. I'm running out of daylight here and am getting ready to eat, so I'll check it tomorrow.

Thanks Ryan/Scott for the help! I'll post my findings tomorrow!

you actually need to pull the hose off at the pump(its mounted directly to the front washer tank and blow it out....you'll probably need compressed air...but be careful and do it lightly

Okay, yeah that's the thing I was looking at (I think)... where the two hoses for the front and rear are attached to?
