Check under hood to make sure it's attached to valve. Use needle to poke through both holes on top.

SOURCE: Washer spray on back windshield

i've actually had this issue with one of my cars. there are tiny spray nossles, that can pivot, from which the water shoots out of to hit the windshield. you need to find something slim and sharp like a bobby pin and place the tip into the exit hole where the water shoots out. gently pivot the nossle towards the area where you want the water to hit the wind shield. be careful not to push the pin too much into the nossle. you may warp the nossle tip and the water my spray out in an undesireable fashion.

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

remove the hose from the washer nozzle and see if a good stream of liquid comes out, if it does the nozzle is plugged, if it doesn't then the hose is kinked somewhere, look for where it goes to nozzle.

SOURCE: Washer fluid will not spray in 1999 Jeep Cherokee sport

If there is a hum when you press the washer button but no fluid than try cleaning the holes where the fluid comes out if that don't work than try replacing the supply hoses. If there is no hum than first check the fuses and if they arn't blown than you more than likly have a faulty motor. Both? unlikely but not impossible. Good luck.

SOURCE: my brake light comes on and fluid spray out from

You have a broken brake line or a wheel cylinder has blown. Do not drive because you may not have emergency brakes now and only have front brakes. Pull cover off of master cylinder located on the drivers side under hood remove hood and look in the reservoir by removing the cap. you will see the rear will not have fluid in it. You do not want to drive unless you have no choice, in that case fill the reservoir up with fluid so that you do not damage the master cylinder, do not drive it far and if you want to do it yourself I can give you instructions on how to do this. Right now you will have to buy two wheel cylinders and replace the rear brakes. The wheel cylinders are $21.00 each a shop will charge you about 40% more to cover there cost to get the parts and give you a warranty. And the brakes will cost you around $50.00 for medium quality and if you drive and destroy the master cylinder it will cost you up to $200.00 starting from $79.00 shoes will cost up to $40.00 for the rear set. Then they will have to bleed system, if they don't have to replace the master cylinder it will cost an average of $250.00 with parts and labor. Thanks for using fix-ya and rate if helpful.

Windshield washer fluid only working on passenger side

nozzle stopped up with wax, or tubing is stopped up, pump motor may be running, but pump isn't. Check for pressure at the pumps. Tubing sometimes comes off or has cracks that let washer fluid escape. Its sounds like a search till you find it type thing. Can't be too much, either a blown fuse, faulty pump/motor, or faulty tubing/clogged nozzle

Im only getting washer fluid out of the drivers side hose. Is there a washer pump I can replace myself

The pump pushes fluid through a single hose that splits into two to deliver washer fluid to the passenger and drivers side washer nozzles. The passenger nozzle is plugged. Try removing it and blowing impressed air through it.

My saturn sc1 1999 stopped spraying washer fluid out of the driver side, the passenger side sprays fine. How can I fix this?

Sounds like the rubber hose broke between the Tee fitting and the spray nozzle. If the nozzles are between the hood and windshield, you may have to remove the wiper arms and the panel under the windshield to get to the hose.

Windshield washer fuild will not come out passenger side. Does the driver side. How do I remove the left front cover speaker cover.

I know an easy fix if you can get access to the rubber tube that is the opposite end of where the fluid comes out of. Just blow into the rubber tube as hard as you can. When the obstruction blows out of the tip of where the fluid sprays on your windshield then hook the rubber tube up and test your washers again. Ive done this many times and its always worked for me.

I hope this helps you out.

The passenger side windshield squirter only sprays on the bottom of the windshield. The drivers side has 2 squirters, should the passenger side 2 also?

The washer jets are either full of car polish (if you polish it), or blocked with dirt from the washer fluid bottle. Blowing them with an air hose normally clears this out. You can then adjust the jet direction with a safety pin. Hope this helped...

Wiper fluid does not work on driver-side.

Follow the tube to the wiper to see if it "Tee's" into the main washer fluid line. Unhook the driver's side one and try to blow through it (Don't inhale, Bill!). If it feels stopped up, you can try compressed air.

Lastly, make sure that the "T" is not blocked too. You can hit the squirter with the driver's side unhooked to see if anything comes out. If it does, it is blocked between the "T" and the exit port. Sometimes the exit ports get wax in them. You can use a paperclip or needle to clean it out.

Washer fluid not working on drivers side

dirt may have gotten into your washer fluid system and clogged the hose going to your drivers side tubing or nozzle, my suggestion is to take all the drivers side hoses out and force air or water the reverse direction to clear any possible clogs. the hardest part of this job should be finding the tubing because its probably hidden.
