yes, a tube...but like my toyota...the damned motor rusted and fell out...and the connector did not connect, but needed to be stripped and soldered...and I had to buy lugs to crimp on~ and came out okay, but had to replace the entire washer tank to fix the motor...near impossible to see down there (maybe with a dental mirror) but you may want to just order a replacement tank...extra hose should be there...beware of connector incompatibilities~ ....tho YES, a hose on the bottom may have fallen off~

Check to see if the tank may have a leak and see if your hose may have fallen off as Bob says..

we used to do a "farmer's repair" back in the early 80's in Wisconsin..you'd simply trim 1/2 inch off the troubled hose and stuff it back on, because the failure is due to Bloating, which you trim off~ so this NO cost repair might help if on a budget~
