2007 F150 5.4L- windshield Washer fluid clogged

The wind shield washer fluid has stopped coming out on the driver side. It just barely trickles out. It still comes out fine on pass side. Is there some type of fluid I can add that will open up the line assuming there is corrosion or something block it? Or should I stick a pin into the nozzle to clear it?

Thanks

not sure if you still have the problem or not but I wouldn't stick anything in the nozzle (might mess up the spray pattern). on my 05 lariat screw the rubber seal for the windshield washer pump deteriorated and clogged my nozzles. took the nozzles off & blew out with compressed air, changed the pump & seal. no more clogging

I had an SUV that clogged frequently. I learned to disconnect the supply hose from the pump to the nozzles and blow into the nozzles with compressed air. You can usually find a plastic union at a convenient place in the firewall/cowl area. Definitely don't stick anything into the nozzles. After clearing them, you might run the pump to clear any other debris in the lines before connecting the supply. Check out the reservoir and clean it as required. I guess if you don't have air at home you could try a dust-off can with the straw attached. You can also use a Water Pik at full strength if you have one of those. Whatever you use in this method, the supply line has to be open so the air, water and debris have somewhere to go.

This is good advice ,if you DO have to clear it out , I used a single wire from a wire brush (a new one) and it didn't wallow out the spray hole .
