windshield washer nozzle clogged

Asked by Jul 14, 2013 at 10:47 AM about the 2004 Saturn ION 2 Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The passenger side washer nozzle is clogged.  I tried a toothpick and made it worse.  I'm afraid to pry it off because I don't know if it comes off that way, and I can't find a way under the hood.

You might try spraying some CLR into the nozzles. Make sure you protect the paint or wipe off any over spray immediately. They make a cheap knockoff at the Dollar store, but I can't attest that it is AS good as CLR.

Well its already clogged so. Try a safety pin since it has a smaller diameter, open the hood disconnet the rubber washer hose, then if you have an air compressor use it to push compressed air through it and blow out the debrise.

A small air compressor that you plug into the lighter should do the trick. Using the attachment for blowing up pool toys remove the washer hose and blow it out with the compressed air. HTH. -Jim
