Hatch washer jet settings?

Just curious to know if the washer jet for the hatch window was adjustable. My mothers focus and one I test drove sprayed wide similar to the front jets, but mine comes out like a pea stream. I tried turning the tip of nozzle, but it doesn't seem to want to budge.

Any clues?

sometimes the spray 'hole' gets partially clogged w/ debris (dirt, wax, etc)
use a small pin to ck to see it's clear.....

Stream here also. No spray. By design I believe. Maybe someone could engineer a press on shower head style attachment to get a spray out of it. Seems to work the way it is though.

Was that a "pea" stream or a "pee" stream? Hmmm... Either way, there is no flow control on the nozzles that allows you to regulate the stream velocity. As somebody suggested, your nozzles may be clogged. I recommend using a very fine sewing needle to see if you can unclog it.

No spray on mine, nice clean stream. Sometimes it sprays for a second or too until the gunk gets cleaned out of it.

Mine's a spray. I thought it might be a 2012 thing, but you other guys reporting a stream also have 2012s.

Crap, reading fail. I was referring to the front ones, not the rear. Mine is a stream in the rear. I'd prefer a spray because the stream usually runs quickly down pass the wiper onto the hatch door.
