Hey guys okay, so I have a 2010 and today I went to clean my windshield from some debris so I pulled the wiper dealo and the steam of fluid shot almost strait at the wipers... Before It would almost cover the whole windshield... What's going on here? Anyone have any idea?

I thought of that too... No ice I live in soCal and dirt could be a possibility but I checked and cleaned them already..

Is there away to align them better?

If its a stream and not a spray, you have something blocking the spray nozzle, or it got damaged. If there isn't anything noticeable on the outside, it's possible debris made it up the tube and is causing the issue from within the spray head. I haven't had this happen, but I suppose its feasible.

Silly question but is your hood latch popped? That would cause them to spray a little lower. Can't think of anything else. If they're seated in properly I don't think there is any way to adjust them.

May seem like a dumb question but did you check your fluid level? Right before it runs out it will spray with considerably less power.

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?

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

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

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
