    ABS sucks.
    Noticed the other day that Rav4's have 3 sprayers per nozzle instead of only 2. Easy 5 minute upgrade after a quick trip to the junkyard for some washer nozzles...

    Before:

    After:

    No tools or other modifications required. Pop out the old ones, snap in the new ones. Adjustments will be required with a sewing needle to align the sprayers to your liking...

    I thought I saw somewhere that could use the nozzles off a Sequoia or something if you wanted a fan pattern. I never have found that thread again.

    what year RAV4 nozzle is it using though because the tricky thing is, there is a hood change in shape and design that means 95-00 trucks have to use a 90 degree to the side or straight down hose fitting to clear the hood brace while (I may be wrong but) I believe the 01-04 trucks use the same 90 degree straight back hose bib fitting that celica, camry, and others use because the hood brace shape is different on them.

    because of how the hood brace is, the hose will pinch and kink and not work if I try to use a nozzle that the hose connection points to the front grill
