Buick Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Randall. Year? model? engine? thanks
so you are trying to clean or change a washer sprayer
I can not send repair information over the phone. I may have to send repair diagrams, Best to keep in chat for now so I asked...so you are trying to clean or change a washer sprayer
They both go to the same pump. Both of the hose come together are connected by a T fitting then t fitting goes to pump. So if one side works but not other this would either mean hose is leaking, pinches, clogged, or nozzle is clogged. So disconnect the hose from passenger side to see if washer fluid comes out good if so nozzle is clogged. If not there is problem with hose between nozzle and T. Let me know how it goes or if you have questions, thanks.
It is usually right by the fender, you will need to locate the hose leaving the nozzle and follow it to the T which could require removing wipers/panel under wipers or fender liner depending on T location. Let me know how it goes, thanks.
Give me a minute to double check, thanks.
If you want to we can but chat is a little easier for me since it gives me time to look up information if needed.
Manual does not cover how to remove wiper arm on this vehicle but if you remove nut then pull wiper arm all the way up and pry back/fourth it should come loose. Here is a video that shows what you should do, let me know how it goes. Thanks. You may not need to remove wipers/cowl so make sure hose goes below cowl before attempting to remove.
Sound good, send me a couple pictures if possible.
Yes, it worked, give me a few minutes to look it over. Thanks.
I think there is a tab on wiper that you need to pull/pry out to pull wiper arm off, I circled tab in following picture. Let me know, thanks.
Pull out tabs on both side, they should come out maybe a half inch or so. Then you can pull wiper arm all the way up/black to rock it back/fourth so it can come off. The wiper cowl is the plastic trim cover under the wiper arms where the washer fluid hoses are. Let me know how it goes or if you have questions. My goal is to provide 5 star service so I'll be here until problem is figured out. Thanks.
Here is a video of the rocking I'm referring to, go about 2.30 minutes in.
I know video isn't the same car but you should still be able to get wipers of by rocking them will tab pulled out. let me know how it goes, thanks
No problem, let me know if you decide to give it another shot. Chance thing I'd probably do is try a pry bar carfully otherwise this is about a $100 repair at a shop.
