If you live in an area that has hard water or lots of dust/ salt there maybe some deposits in the lines or ports of the "sprayer" use a round tooth pick or simular tool to push the dirt back down inside the ports, also you can GENTLY pull the line(s) off the bottoms of the ports ( if mounted to the hood) and clear them that way. if that doesn't work you may have open the lines on both ends and try to blow through them with a LOW pressure air source. avoid doing this with your mouth as chems in the system are VERY poisonous! good luck!

Either you have a bad pump or you have a broken line that wont dispense windshield wash... Assuming it is the pump you can purchase one at any autoparts store and is fairly easy to replace...Before you replace it follow the hose all the way to the end and make sure its not broke or clogged....Good Luck

Windshield washer fluid doesn't squirt after windshield replacement


They probably knocked loose one or more of the tubes that carry the washer fluid. Try to trace the lines back from the sprayer nozzles and you may find the problem.

1995 saturn My windshield washer doesn't squirt fluid. Which fuse should I check? What else should I look at?


This reply falls under, " what else should I look at."

When you press to squirt, do you hear any sound? if you do there are 3 easy things you can do.

1. Some of the windshield wiper reserviors, ( plastic bottles ), need a minimumlevel of fluid to operate, so, make sure you fill up your reservior.

If that doesn't help;
2. There is a very small hose that runs from the reservior to the pump, pull it off of the pump end, very carefully, and have someone hit the squirter.

If fluid comes through the hose;
3. Take a very small paper clip, straighten one end out, and push it into the ports that the water shoots out of to squirt the windshield.
Sometimes wax or debree can clogg these very little holes.

Windshield washer will not squirt


Make sure you have water or windshield wiper fluid in the reserve (open your hood and add more, look for a blue plastic cap) if you hear it humming when you turn it on then the pump is working. Also check the little nozzles on the hood (one on each side) and see if they are clogged, stick a small safety pin into the holes and move it in and out to free up ant debris inside that may stop the water from squirting out

My windshield wipers work but I cant squirt windshield cleaner


it's likely the tiny motor/pump located at the bottom of the tank that has failed. to confirm this have some turn on the washer fluid switch and test for voltage at the pump. there are several aftermarket pumps you can use as a replacement.
