You never know how important your windshield washers are until they no longer work. Often times, poor washer performance and inadequate spray are caused by clogged nozzles. The nozzles can be cleaned to restore washer performance - and replaced if they are broken.

Part 1 of 1: Clean the nozzle

Materials Needed

  • Pin or small piece of wire
  • Windshield spray nozzle needle (optional) - Toolpan

Step 1: Determine which nozzle is clogged. Typically, it’s pretty easy to visually determine which nozzle is clogged.

Step 2: Clean the nozzle. Insert a thin piece of wire or a pin into the nozzle opening to break up the obstruction. An even better way of doing this is to use a dedicated windshield spray nozzle needle.

Step 2: Test the nozzles. Test the nozzles to ensure they are free of obstruction and spray correctly.

Cleaning washer nozzles is generally a pretty simply procedure. However, if you feel like leaving this job to a professional, the YourMechanic offers expert washer nozzle cleaning service.

Volvo S60 - Noise from engine or exhaust - Boynton Beach, Florida
Jeremy G. was very skilled, professional and courteous. My regular/former mechanic was unable to diagnose the problem with noise coming from under the hood. Yesterday, when I was going to drop the car off for the day for the mechanic to check everything as he told me I must, he called in sick. I reviewed the top-ranked mechanics rated online and found YourMechanic. So glad I did! Jeremy G. came determined what the problem was, assured me I would not be charged until the problem was resolved. We made an appointment for today, Jeremy did the repair and showed me the burnt-out part from the car, which is now running smoothly and quietly! I checked the general cost for the same repair/parts replacement and YouMechanic's was comparative and with the bonus of the convenience factor, which is considerable. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeremy at YourMechanic's.
