It's likely leaking from the washer switch itself or where the hose goes through the firewall. I'll post an image below of the air box as well as what the washer switch looks like.

If you look about an inch or two above the dash on the left side of the steering column you should see the hose connections.

As far as the squirter nozzles go you can clean and aim them by inserting a smll needle in it and moving it to the desired direction.

If I can help further just reply back.
