Yeah, mine aren't clogged but just angled wrong. I use a thumb tack and adjust them accordingly.

I wonder if there is an easy way to swap them out with newer ones that have a spray pattern rather than the straight shot we have.

Who cares? LOL

I actually leave mine clogged with wax because I would never use it. It would most likely get water places I don't want it.

i thought bout switching with the chevy wipers because spray is on the wiper, it covers more area, and it doesnt at all touch the body

Me? Not at all. I'm serious. I don't use mine. Why would I? If your windshield is that dirty that you need to use that you need to wash your freakin car.

So you're saying that your windshield never gets dirty in the course of driving. It may be clean when you leave your house but no guarantee it will stay that way.

Yeah, it might get some bugs on it, but I clean it when I get home. When you spray washer fluid it goes other places, it doesn't all stay on your windshield.

Use only at speed; it sweeps off your car nicely =)

Check the washer lines themselves. mine was crimped when I first got my Legend, and fluid never would reach the windshield. I just straightened the line back out and it wors fine.

I had a "lazy nozzle" in which one squirter was partially blocked.
My solution was to:
a) disconnect the hose from the blocked nozzle
b) use a combination of canned air and the compressed air hose you can use at the gas station to blow the offending big back into the nozzle. This will push whatever is sticking down back out where the hose was originally connected to the nozzle.

If you don't disconnect the hose first, you may just be using the pin or air to push whatever contaminents that are clogging the nozzle back into the hose. A few uses of the washers and the offending clump might lodge itself in the squirter again.

just use a needle to unclog, and then re-angle.

thats one nice thing about the g1 coupes, the nozzles are hidden under the hood lip and spray just up to the windshield. it also makes a much cleaner look to the hood area, especially on a white coupe!

I didn't know that..I wish ours were clean. Should have shaved them for paint..oh well. I'm gonna try to unclog them today and check the lines.

Anyone who doesn't believe 91LSMAN about leaving his clogged (with wax..lol) doesn't know him much..LMAO
We know you wouldn't dare spray that shit on your car bro...I just want them to work..know what I mean. I don't ever use them either but I would like to have that option.

Thanks guys...didn't know you could adjust them ...I never had a reason to mess with those things on any of my carsw so now I know.
