NJEclipseGT : who are you?
Windshield wiper jets don't shoot :(

What's up guys and merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate. I have been having problems with the wiper jets. They don't shoot out any liquid when I pull the handle. I opened the hood and noticed that I am losing wiper fluid when I pull the handle. When the hood was open I tried it again and it shot out like it normally should. Any suggestions you guys have that might fix this? Or maybe someone can just identify my problem. Thanks guys and have a great holiday m

If it works like it should when the hoods open sounds like the lines getting pinched somewhere when you shut the hood not allowing the fluid to flow through. Look at the hoses and see if you see any marks from where it been pressed against something.

My system had a broken T so it would only shoot out of one at low pressure. Should be a pretty simple fix for ya. My T was really crappy plastic that had hardened and become brittle. T's and hoses are cheap at parts stores, but beware, I didn't have a lot of slack on mine and I had to cut a piece down since the piece of T was broke of in there, so be careful if you've got to do any cutting, or get some vacuum/washer fluid couplers to extend the hoses if need be so you don'y have to remove your sprayers.

It's from the same reservoir but different motor/tubes. I think I have one laying around actually too.
