Hood windshield washer fluid outlets clogged

Anyone ever unclog or replace these things. Mine sputter fluid out but not onto the windshield enough to be effective.

Remove the nozzles, soak them in white vinegar.

The nozzles will become clogged over time...one reason is when you wax your truck, unless you are careful, some wax will find its way into the nozzles.

Thanks for the link Adam, and the vinegar option Bill, I should have taken care of this before I painted the darn hood.

When I was out at the salv yard I got the nozzles, they pop right off with some pliers, they let me have them free to. Put them on problem solved. Easiest repair done lately.
