Default winshield washer spray adjustment?

I suppose this is in the Owner's Manual but...does anyone know how to adjust the spray for the windshield washers? Mine have always tended to hit a bit 'high' on the windshield even with the vehicle at rest, a problem exacerbated when moving down the highway.

Thanks in advance!

Some guy once said to stick a pin in the whole and bend the spray head as needed.

Cool...I'll go try that. That is what I've had to do on others, but the Ford's seem to be more 'fixed in place'.

Ok good luck. I don't know if that will work on our trucks, I just heard some guy mention it (we know it works on some vehicles of course). Let us know how you make out. Thanks

Bumping rather than starting a new thread...Mine passenger side nozzle sprays almost entirely off the windshield to the side and is also too spraying too high. Did the pin adjustment work? I tried turning the housings with my fingers to no avail and was leery of using a pin/needle to pry on the nozzle jet.

Any advice for adjusting the spray of the windshield washer?

Basically a bump: My passenger side needs to be moved and of course its not possible. I'm thinking of taking a small needle file and morph the slot.

My Dealer replaced the original and got zero improvement.

Anyone have a better solution?

Sorry for another bump but the only way I could find this thread was to search.

Just looking for a solution.
