Windshield Wiper Sprayers Not Working

My windshield wipers won't dispense water. Is there a pump that works this?

My husband fixed ours. The tank holding the water was cracked, so there was no water. So he mended the tank and now they work. Check under the hood. The plastic tank will be quite visible. (11/10/2009)

After the obvious check to see if there is fluid in the reservoir, disconnect the line going to the washer-ports [easily seen under the hood; just a simple "pull" is all that is required]. Turn on the engine and activate the "washer mode"; if no fluid is dispensed or you don't hear the pump activating; the pump should be replaced. If fluid is dispensed, reconnect the fluid hose and take a sewing pin and clean out the holes in the washer port; then brush them with an old toothbrush. One of these will remedy your situation.

My problem was also caused by a crack in the reservoir. If possible, take it out and mend it like pamphyila's husband did because those buggers are expensive to replace. A new one for my car (part only, not including labor) would have been almost $100.00 :-o (11/13/2009)
