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 3: 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.
