Wiper fluid issue

Yeah I have check all of these things it's been about. 2 weeks since I waxed it and it was working great after that... I checked the fluid level and topped it off... Could it be that my pump is going bad?

Re: Wiper fluid issue

does the pump sound funny?
I`d look into loose connection or possible tear in the hose somewhere...

Re: Wiper fluid issue

Did you ever stick something in the sprayer to "clean" it? Like perhaps a toothpick or paper clip or something? You should never stick something in the sprayer nozzle to try to clean it because you could accidentally reshape the plastic and permanently ruin the spray pattern. If something is stuck in the nozzle use something like a toothbrush to clean it out. As for what to do about it, go to the deal and buy a new one. Shouldn't be more that a few bucks

Wiper fluid issue

The pump did sound a little odd.. I didn't stick anything down the nozzle, I do use a tooth brush for a lot of those tight places... My wife says I'm a little to OCD with it but hey I'm gonna do it I'm gonna do it right!
I took it to the dealer this morning I have a buddy that works there so he's gonna check it out for me, as well as I had a recall I didn't know about that they are going to take care of...
I'm going to hammers this weekend so I wanted to make sure everything was good

Wiper fluid issue

I got a phone call and they said my tubing got twisted.. Much like a hose when it has a kink in it... I don't know how this happened, but they replaced all the tubing for me and said its working great now.. So if this happens to anyone else tracing your tubing back :]

Thanks for all of your input guys I appreciate it
