I had the same problem. Reservoir would drain for no reason and I later found that the water was soaking the passenger side carpet and filling the wire channel under the doors. Tracked the problem to a barbed fitting behind the passenger side kick panel, just below the dash. The fitting connects the tubing coming through the firewall from the reservoir to the rear wiper/washer. The hose had come loose from the fitting (possibly due to freezing). I re-installed the tubing onto the the fitting and it has been fine ever since.

Just cut the hose and go to part store and purchase the proper hose splice adapter. It would be advisible to tape it off to after application.

Sometimes due to deposite of sediments in the hose or the joint of hose and reservoir the fluid stops flowing. Find out which is the washer reservoir, (there is one for the radiator with green liquid, and one for the washer with clear liquid) and the hose that leads to the windshield. Clean the whole hose of any blockages. Also check and clean the jet at the end of the hose. take a paper pin and clean the jet with it. And make sure that the hose is attached to the reservoir. Ask someone to run the washer and see where all these items lie.

Winshield Washer Fluid extremely low pressure


The washer pump is located in the right front fender, mounted infront of the wheel. Remove the front portion of the wheel well splash cover to gain excess. This pump does the work for the front and rear washers. Verify that the pump is working and then check for a pinched hose.
However, if you hear the pump working,as you say, open the hood and take the hoses off the squirter nozzles to see if there is good flow of fluid. If there is, then your nozzles are plugged. You may be able to clean them out with some air pressure. Careful working with the nozzles, as they are plastic and break easy.

Winshield washer motor does not run


These days, most windshield washer pumps are mounted to the bottom of the washer fluid reservoir. Where’s that, you ask? Well, inner+fender+w+text.jpgyou know that spout you pour the fluid into—the one that disappears into nowhere? Well, the reservoir is actually 2384f71.jpglocated inside the front fender between the bumper and the front wheel. To replace the pump, you will have to jack up the vehicle, remove the front wheel and then remove the inner fender liner.
