Windshield Washer Squirters

The problem I am having is that my front windshield washer squirters are only spraying out up about 2-3 inches on my windshield. Back has plenty of pressure. I have already checked for clogs in the nozzles themselves. Any ideas on what else it could be?

Thanks

if you take out the pass head light you will see the washer resivor, you have 2 little pumps there. switch the lines and see if the front works as good as the back had. if it does then its your front washer pump. if not then you have a clog somewhere in the line from the resivor to the hood....

Ok so I went down and purchased a new pump and put that on. It did not change the intensity of the spray. I also took one of the air dusters and blew the air from the squirter back to the tank and I could hear bubbles so I am assuming that the lines are clear. Does anyone else have any ideas on what it could be? Any help would be appreciated. Not have windshield washer fluid during the winter SUCKS!!

Unfortunately I have been! No more. Where are the screens at and what's the best way to clean them?

It looks like the hose going from the pump to the squirters has a point where you can split it apart. Has anyone ever tried this? I though I could try to see if the pump is working at full power.

Problem fixed! After replacing the pump, taking out the reservoir and cleaning it, and cleaning out all of the lines it ended up being a partial clog in the nozzle. Should have looked there first. Loverotties was right. One positive from this, aside from it being fixed, is that I know how to disassemble and reassemble the entire windshield washer system.

Yup. You never know what you are going to find inside the nozzle. My 2002 nozzles are 2 pieces and I have taken them apart before. He tons of flow and pressure all the way up to the nozzle. Used a pick and took the nozzle halfes apart and found some little white stones or what ever it was. Like like silica sand granduals. Good fix!
