Windshield washer nozzle

Has anyone ever had a windshield washer nozzle stop working? Is there an easy way to unclog it or does it need to be replaced?

Try a pin @ the nozzle, if that doesn't work you can remove the plastic grill &
and check out the hoses feeding the nozzles.

Unhook the line leading to it and put the air compressor to it. I put some kind of soap in mine once cause I was desperate and after that they all worked much better too.

Remove the plastic valence on the top of the firewall. Just a few screws and plastic clips

Then the nozzle will simply pop out. I back flushed mine using a garden hose sprayer

Try the needle first of course. But if it's grit, you'll have to do the surgery. Took maybe 10 minutes luckily
