Windshield Nozzle Problems

2008 Versa and the nozzles don't spray any fluid. The fluid is going through the hoses (even after the "y" separator) but nothing comes out of the nozzles. I have cleaned then and tried pointing them in different directions but nothing comes out. Any ideas on where I can find the replacement parts for this? I ordered some "universal" nozzles but they do not fit. Any help is greatly appreciated!

If the pump has a filter clogged enough you might easily get fluid moving in lines say disconnected but not enough pressure to come out of the nozzle.

Just sayin'.........might not be that either.

When I have that problem, it is usually that the nozzles are clogged. I tried using a pin to unclog the nozzles, but it wasn't thin enough to really get inside the small hole. What I found that worked for me was using the twist ties that are usually found on white bread bags or other grocery items. I strip off the paper that covers the wire, and then insert the wire into the nozzle. The wire is soft enough that it can go in pretty far. Its a cheap fix, and is worth a shot. Good luck!!!!

Another use for twist-ties, I save a few of them for such things. The finest guitar string, an E, I'm thinking, can be a kick-ss hole poker too, very stiff if you need that. I use that one (.013") all the time in bike carb work.

I've used modeling brass tubing for super small crimp connectors on electrical like diodes or resistors, another nice trick. Then heat shrink tubing over the top.

A million tools out there and most of them cost nothing.

You haven't done any engine work have you? When you remove the plastic trim under the wipers, sometimes the washer fluid hose may get pinched somewhere blocking the washer liquid flow. I'm assuming you've checked to see if the hose is pinched anywhere? I had this issue and it was that my hose was being pinched.
