There is a very good possibility that the nozzeles are plugged with "debris". Try using compressed air to force the "debris" out of the nozzles. This is best done by removing the lines going to the nozzles and and blowing the compressed air through the nozzles from the directon in wich they are intended to spray. A toothpick or metal pick may work as well to loosen the "debris" depending on the size of the nozzle.

SOURCE: wont stay tight wiper arm

The wiper arm has teeth on it that hold it the spindle, those teeth wear out and let the wiper arm flop all over. You need a new wiper arm, if it is under warranty I'd take it in, if not changing awiper arm is easy. I've seen this on several kias, and also on other foriegn cars. It is just a bad design in my opinion.

Hi

It is usually the fuse. This blows very easily.(eg Ifyou operaten the washers when the fluid is frozen or partially frozen)

Look in your handbook. And in the fuse box in the engine compartment

this just happened to us, the drivers side stopped working after getting tangled up with the passenger side...it was just a case of tightening up the 13mm nuts on the wiper arm.

Hi, First check that you have wash liquid in tank. second make sure that it will not freeze by putting alcohol in your mix of water and soap. You can buy it already mixed at most service stations. Check pump for corosion on contacts.
Good luck.

2003 kia rio- water pumps


I would follow the mechanics recommedations. I think he's taliking about the cam and crankshaft seals. Yes the water pump should be replaced as well. The pump that sprays windshield washer fluid onto the windshield is called the windshield washer pump. The water pump is on the engine and pumps water (coolant/antifreeze) through the engine to the radiator and heater core.

My Kia 2003 rio front windscreen water not working


Take off the pipe at the pump then use the washer switch and see if the water sprays out. To check if the pump is working you will need someone to use the switch while you hold your hand on the pump you should feel or hear the pump working. If the pump is going but no water spraying blow back through it and try again. If it dosent work then you will probably need a pump.
