Windshield washer not working, rear window wash does work

30

Asked by Oct 13, 2014 at 12:16 PM about the 2011 Toyota Sienna LE 8-Passenger

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2011 Sienna LE.  When I engage the washer spray on the rear window it works well. When I attempt to engage it on the windshield, the wipers come on, as expected, but no spray comes out.  
There is only one pump for the front and rear spray.

I removed the washer hose near the spray nozzle, blew into it, and the reservoir started bubbling from the air; therefore, the hose is not clogged.

What else could be the problem?

Thanks for any ideas you can provide!

There are two pumps, front and rear windows, on the Sienna. The front pump needs to be replaced.

I am having the same issue with my 2011 sequoia. Did you find out what caused it and what you did to fix it?

Mine wasn't spraying either so I took the cover off the underside of the hood and disconnected the hose where it splits to go to the 2 different nozzles. There is a little black round thing there that the hose is connected too. I disconnected the feed line from that and ran the pump and it sprayed fluid. But when I hooked it back to the little round thing and disconnected the 2 lines going to the nozzles, it wouldn't spray. I didn't finish my fix yet, but it appears to me that for some unknown reason the fluid is not getting through that little round thing. My plan is to replace that and see what happens.
