Default Wiper Fluid Sprayer Not Working

Sorry for posting 2 threads in quick succession! Just have a question...

Has anyone else had trouble with the wiper solution sprayer motor? Mine won't spray at all, hasn't worked for me ever. How can I test to see if the motor is good? How could I check for a clog?

Thanks so much guys, you've all been very helpful to me with everything I've come here about!

Make sure you're getting power at the motor connector with the key on and switch pushed and if you do but the motor doesn't run whack the motor with a wrench and a lot of times it will skip the bad spot and start working. To test for a clog just pull the washer hoses off and make sure air blows through.

Thanks! I'll try that tonight when I get back from work... it's not a huge deal, but it always bugs me. Hasn't rained much here this summer and my windows get pretty bad. With a 90 mile round trip commute daily, bugs build up, even if I clean the windows everytime I fill up.

Yeah I like to use them in winter time to get rid of the frost real quick in the mornings too. Those motors tend to go bad eventually, they get all rusty and stuff. They're easy to get you, you just use a pick to pop this metal toothed ring out then grab the connector area with pliers and pull it out. Keep the metal ring to hold the new motor in, I'd bet it needs a motor.

I think you're right... nothing seemed to do the trick yesterday. Thanks for the advice, man!
