Question about Volvo Cars & Trucks
The washer fluid in my Volvo s40 doesnt spray onto the windshield, the fluid pours out onto the ground. I can hear the pump working, I am not sure if it is maybe a hose leak.
Open the engine cover bonnet as we say in the uk. look to the back of the bonnet you will see the rubber hoses that fit into both the nipples for your washers .refit the hoses.

SOURCE: My 2006 Kia Spectra's windshield
I have the same problem with my '06 Spectra 5. I haven't noticed the knocking sound though. The weird thing is my rear window washer works fine which leads me to believe that the washer pump is still OK but what do I know :D

If the hose clamps onto the rack & pinion,get a new clamp (replace the hose too,its probably worn)Reinstall it.fill the p/s resovoir,start the car (when the fluid gets low,add more fluid)It will make moaning noises.Just make sure the new hose isnt leaking.Turn the steering wheel back & forth a few times,top off the fluid,turn the wheel again,you should be ok.If the hose bolts on to the pump,you will need to change the hose with a wrench.(fluid replacement is the same way.

first check the tubes to make sure they are not off and if they are connected then take a straight pin and poke it into the little holes where it sprays out

Look under the heat blanket under your hood. There are plastic connectors that feed the fluid from tubes up to the nozzles mounted on the hood. On my car the plastic connectors are broken so the tubes are just hanging out in the wind :-) This also causes a vacuum issue so the spray on the back window suffers as well.
I am looking for a replacement currently. If you find anything let me know!!
