Re: Windshield sprayer won't work
When you turn on the sprayer you should hear a pump motor running, try this with the engine off and key on so u can hear better. if u dont hear the pump then check the fuse if its ok then u will need a new windshield washer pump. if the pump is running when u activate it check for a leak in the lines. if you hold the washer button down long enough and the pump is running then you will see washerfluid leaking from somewhare. have hood raised when doing this so you can see better.

the small nozzle where the water comes out is actually a small ball and can be adjusted by inserting a small wire in the hole and moving it to where you want the water to spray to
it could be difficult to move as over time the ball corrodes into one spot in which , new sprayers are the fix
the sprayers will be frozen what have you got in the winscreen resevoir bottle if its just water it will freeze even proper winscreen washing fluid will freeze at thei temp is it the blower inside the car if so only thing that it could be is water or on the motor like condensation or the motor is on its way out so it takes ages for it to start spinning when its away it works fine but when it stops it doesent want to work
sounds like the spray nozzles are clogged you can usually remove them and soak them in soapy water or spray water through it with a sprayer on the end of a hose. if that doesn't solve it then you may have a cracked line or the pump that pumps it out may be broken but usually is the nozzles are clogged.
u washer pump motor went out i suggest taking it to a dealer
