On the drivers side front window washer unit, the water is directed toward the center of the windshield instead of the drivers side. Therefore, the winter salt/dirt is not cleaned on the drivers side. How do you realign/clean the button/port to correct the direction. I've tried a small pin inserted into the unit thinking it might be plugged. Did not help. Pressure is fine, direction is not.

A washer pump in a car's windshield wiping system moves washer fluid from a reservoir through hoses. The motorized pump pressurizes the fluid to allow it to be squirted from the hoses through nozzles onto the front and/or rear windshield of a car. The washer fluid helps windshield wipers get rid of rain, dirt, or other objects that can interfere with a driver's visibility. If your washer fluid is not being sent out when activated, the solution could simply be filling the washer system's reservoir with more fluid or cleaning the nozzles and hoses. In more severe cases, the washer pump may need to be replaced. Here are steps to troubleshoot a windshield-washer pump.
so if i were you i would be checking drain plug or drain opening in front of wind shield. probably it is under plastic grill next to wipers. it transfers the collected rain water infront of windshield and direct it to ground. if it is clogged flooded water can drain into cabin.
Have your radio code before you pull it out with the right radio tool. This pull would involve removing this parts.
Driver side panel
Center top dash board
Defrost switch carrier
Center lower half of dash
So I'd suggest go to your local public library and look for your car manual. It would be either Chiltons or Clymers manual, it's not as precise a Bentley VW Official factory repair manual. Yes it really involves taking all those parts out just to get to the rotary switch.
take a star screw driver and punch a pair of holes in your floor on drivers side make sure once you go through push the screw driver towards the front of the car and creat angled pockets
these will be your new drains being so small they will bnot tako on water or they will take on a min of water and they will drain the floors
it''s the easiest way to fix the problem go right through the carpet it's just thet easy use a good pointy screw driver or a center punch but dont make the hole larger then 1/4 inch
a mechanic will carge you 250 to fix original drains and will likely do the same as i said a couple of wacks near the lower center on the floor boards
so get in place feet on floor slide them back against the seat with it all the way back now place pointy object between feet and wach it with a hammer
once through push pointy objest forward to create new drain
Check your firewall between front psngr side and engine bay and psngr side fender. Check If there is no leak from you windshield or window, then your floor board might have a hole in it too. Simple window/door leak check, (preferrably at night) have someone who smokes cigarettes sit in the psngr side with all the windows closed and have him him/her blow smoke towards the windshield, window, and towards the middle of the 2 doors. If you want to put the fan in the car as well do it but car will stink more. While you stand outside and see if smoke is coming out. Hope this helps.
open the leaft driver door.look inside towards dash.there should be a panel that says fuse access.if not it could be under the hood towards the front window under a black plastic cover that also says fuse access..on all the fuse doors you will encounter in your life there will be a detailed map of which fuse does what.find the window wiper one(will be abbreviated due to lack of space)pull it and change it.the fuse panel may also be under back seat as it is in an Aurora or Some saturns..
