Windshield Washer Nozzles

Mine are not spraying evenly. The passenger side sprays like all hell and the driver's side sprays very weakly. It barely sprays to the middle of the windshield. I checked the hose under the hood that the washer fluid runs through and looked for cracks or kinks. None found. I am thinking the only other thing it could be is sediment built up in the washer nozzle on the driver's side. Has anyone ever cleaned the washer nozzles and what should I use to clean them with? Any other advice on what it could be? Thanks for any help anyone might have.

run an air hose through them after and blow the shit out of it, instead of having the debris fall in further

you could try some compressed air to clean it out with.

another way would be to take off the nozzle and soak it in warm soapy water....

my old 93 had cracked washer nozzles, where the hose meet the nozzle fitting. you could check those as well...

worst case scenario: get a new nozzle, and hope that the color matches ur car....

if it was the motor going out, then he would get weak pressure out of both nozzles, right?

Thanks for the input guys. Do the nozzles come off easily? I may take them off and take a look at them and see if they are jammed with crap or cracked.

there should be plastic tabs that are holding them to the hood underneath.... if you pop the tabs, they should come off without much issue...

They come off fairly easy, only a few clips hold the in.
Just shoot compressed air from a compressor through the tube connected to the nozzles an it should clear them.
I did this an it worked perfectly!

CLR works very well also. Cleans your shower nozzle also. If you have any rusted paint chips dab with CLR 1st then touch up.

I tried getting the nozzles off the other night and could only get one notch out on each of them. There seems to be 2 notches on either side that you press together, push up and out. I can only get one of those notches out of the hood. Didn't want to press too hard as I didn't want to break it. I finally get a weekend off this weekend so I'm going to try again. Any other suggestion? I may try pressing both tabs together with a needle-nose pliers if it comes to it.

Just go to your local auto store and get some of those "LED washer nozzle things" I have them but I just cut the wires so they're only used as nozzles. The things work beautifully! And they're under 20 bucks I believe. That's if you honestly don't know what to do about it. But take it from me, if you get some of those LED things, just cut the wires all the way up to the nozzle and just use them for their main function. They don't look to bad on cars either (make sure you get like black cased ones, because some of those chrome ones will peel)

EDIT: This is also an idea in case you're trying to take those things off to look at them and you happen to accidentally break one
