It sounds like the nozzle is missing. If you have junkyards with similar year model vehicles, I'd look there first, that will give you an idea of what to look for, or the part you can replace yourself. If the nozzle looks intact, then first check the fluid level in the rear fluid container- don't add yet. If the level looks good, have someone actuate it while you're back there to see if the motor sounds labored. You can remove the motor and clean a screen that's on the front of the motor. It's very common for these to die as a result of not being used, then the washer fluid separates and evaporates over years making a blue sludge that can damage the motor and clog the lines. You'll want to locate a nearby drain plug, or siphon out as much as you can before removing the motor. If you can remove the washer fluid container intact- that would be best.

I'd check that pump to make sure it's not clogged up if the nozzle looks like it's there. You should flush the line to the nozzle as well, but an unclogged pump might push crud out if left to run long enough. It might be too much trouble to disconnect the line from the nozzle to clean it.

Posted via FF MobileSounds like the nozzle has gone missing, and you will likely have to replace the nozzle holder assembly as I`ve NEVER seen a separate nozzle piece offered for sale.....

Posted via FF MobileYou need to get at it from the inside, after removing whatever trim covers the area to detatch the hose and unscrew/unbolt it. Can`t give specifics as I haven`t seen your specific model.
