    Find, get something thin and see if twisting it helps? The washer pump must be working, because one nozzle is streaming fine. There are two nozzles per wiper. At least one of is streaming, the other…not so much. My truck has been “sprinkled on” over the past year off and on with notoriously hard water. That and dust and dirt. Hard water build up at the nozzle? Currently looking for something to poke it with. Each one has two nozzles.

    I find a safety pin or sewing needle works in most cases, to unclog the wipers squirters.

    I just pop them out and hit them with compressed air from the back. Then you don't have to re-aim them afterward.

    Do they pop out without too much cursing? I have a Toyota fiberglass noise dampener shield connected. Makes it a bit of a hassle. Can’t wait to see if a pin clears them out. I’m trying to think of where I can get a useful clean out object without spending $5.99, Lol, cruise the isles of Home Depot, bend and break off a piece. A sandwich bag twist tie stripped of paper might not do it.
