Question about 2006 Subaru Forester

1 Answer

Front wiper fluid is not spraying

Lines themselves don't appear to be clogged, but I can't seem to get the lines disconnected all the way to confirm. Any suggestions on what and where to check for blockage. Rear window is spraying fine. We just went through a cold snap here and I thought perhaps the lines were just frozen.

I checked the fuse to see if it was blown but it was fine.

Thanks, Mitch

    Just tried this, but no luck. I can't seem to hear the motor though.

My front washer fluid stopped working on my 2001 subaru impreza outback, I can't hear the motor when I activate it, what's the problem?


Have you check fluid levels? Sounds like there may be a clog with in the lines themselves. Check the lines after the motor. Good luck.

Only one winshied wiper spray works


Check the rubber hoses to the sprayers. If they are on the hood they can come unplugged when you open it. Have a friend work the sprayers as you watch for leaks. An old toothbrush can be used to clean spray nozzles by scrubbing over the hole.

Wiper fluid only sprays on one side of 2004 cavalier (drivers side)


check the lines that lead to the wipers and make sure they aren't cut. if they are replace them. if not you might replace them anyway to see if that fixes it... if it was clogged or something.

Rear window washer-no fluid


You may have a line disconnected or the tank may be emply? Are all lines connected at the rear blade? I believe the fluid comes from the front tank under the hood. Check the lines from the tank.
Also check the pump. Can you hear the pump when using rear wiper/washer?

2000 Chevrolet Venture front winshield washers won't spray


If it shoots from the pump without lines connected, then there has to be blockage somewhere. You mentioned you blew the lines out, did you blow directly back through nozzles themselves?

Windshield wiper fluid wont come out..


It does not take very much dirt in the washer fluid reservoir to plug the nozzles for the windshield washers. check for dirt in the reservoir and clean out if need be. If you are in below freezing temperatures make sure your washer fluid is good for below freezing. mike
