Plastic Windshield Washer spray tip broke at just

Plastic Windshield Washer spray tip broke just below hose to the wiper - tiny part, maybe cost $0.05 to manufacture.

How can I extract the remainder without disassembling the entire vehicle? Replacing it with a new tip is a simple matter of pressing the new part back into the hole.

Thanks,
Jim

In my 2007 Saturn Vue there is what I think is an air pump which is cracked that one port is not connected to anything.


There is a electric motor that pumps washer fluid . Located in the bottom of the washer fluid tank .
Wash Operation (Front and Rear Wipers)
The front and rear washer systems use the same windshield washer fluid pump. When either the front or rear wiper is in the washer position voltage will be supplied to one side of the windshield washer fluid pump (depending on whether it is front or rear), while the other side of the pump is grounded.
At this point, the windshield washer fluid pump sprays solvent onto the windshield. When the front or rear washer is activated, the BCM receives an input from the switch that is activated. The BCM will control the wipers while in the WASH mode. The BCM will control either the front wiper relay or the rear wiper relay to turn on the wipers. The windshield wipers operate at low speed for 3 swipes and returns to the park position.

When turning on the washers do you hear the motor run ? Have some one try it while you listen at the washer fluid tank ! These pump motors do go bad .
turn OFF the ignition.
Disconnect the harness electrical connector of the windshield washer fluid pump.
Connect a test lamp from the windshield washer pump control circuit to a good ground .
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Press the front washer switch.
Does the test lamp illuminate?
YES or NO !

Windshield washer fluid quit working on my 2011 Freightliner Cascadia


There's a few things you might want to check. First, check to make sure the washer fluid reservoir is completely (assuming you hadn't already done that). After you are certain the reservoir is full, look for any possible leaks...either the reservoir or the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. If the tank and hoses are intact, turn on your windshield wipers...then try running the pump. If no washer fluid comes out, and for this you might need another person to assist you, try running the pump again...listening to make sure the pump is in fact running. If the pump does run but still no fluid comes out, inspect all of the hoses as well as all of the outlets where the fluid sprays the windshield...it is possible that the outlets may be plugged. Some common reasons for the outlets to be plugged...debris, dirt/mud, and/or wax (has anyone recently waxed your Freightliner?). Just to be sure, using a small needle or even a wire, ensure each outlet is cleared and not obstructed with anything. After that, try running the pump again. If no luck, try removing the hoses going from the tank to the windshield. Once removed, using something like a wire coat hanger, clear each hose for any possible obstruction. Reattach hoses and try running pump again. If still no luck, I would guess the problem might be located with the washer pump itself. Before opting to replace the pump, if you believe that is the problem and the pump just doesn't operate, check all fuses and inspect any/all wiring connections.

Good luck

How to fix the wiper spray


The sprayer itself may be attached to the underside of the wiper arm and is removable. Carefully remove the sprayer, disconnect the hose, and turn on the wiper and the washer. It liquid comes out of the hose, the sprayer is clogged. If no liquid comes out, the hose could be clogged, so replace the hose. You need to find the other end at the black plastic manifold that divides the washer flow into the two sprayers. Disconnect the passenger side and blow into in, just in case to unclog it, then try again. If the washer is working for the driver side, that manifold is unclogged.

Soaking the sprayer overnight in vinegar could unclog it., but the sprayer is cheap to buy new.

My 2006 Dodge Dakota windshield washer fluid does not spray. I checked the washer pump and it works. The fuses are all good. And the wipers work. When I press the windshield washer button inside the truck...


If the pump works, something should be flowing thru the hose to the spray nozzles.
And if the pump works, everything electrical is working.
How do you know the pump works ?

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.

Only one winshied wiper spray works


Check the rubber hoses to the sprayers. If they are on the hood they can come unplugged when you open it. Have a friend work the sprayers as you watch for leaks. An old toothbrush can be used to clean spray nozzles by scrubbing over the hole.

When i go to use the windshield wipers the wipers move but the fluid which is full doesn't come out.


follow the windshield spray nasal water lie to the pump making sure the line is not broken, next do you hear the pump running when you spay the fluid, if not that the pump is faulty, if you do hear the pump running, more likely the windshield spray nasal is clog with debris; to unclog it try to use a clothes needle, poke around in it to see if you can clear the blockage, if not, replace will be the best idea, fairly cheap and easy to replace. those windshield tank and the pump does not have good filter on them and they tend to get clog up in the pump or the spray nasal.
