normally this is causes by a restriction in the main pump to washer sprayer line. follow the lines from the spray unit back and you will see a T fitting connecting the main line from the pump to the T remove the lower main line and check operation.fi fluid comes out then the issue is in the T fitting. if not remove the main line from the pump itself. if no fluid and the pump or fluid is not frozen suspect the washer fluid pump has failed. if fluid is coming from pump check main line for restriction. please take a moment to Rate/Accept my service.
