    Has anyone had a problem with the washer fluid nozzles freezing up on a cold day? It seems even 32 deg my washer fluid won't work. I'm not so foolish as to think toyota is cuting their fluid with water either. Has anyone installed heated nozzles mod?

    Toyota dealers water their fluid down, or at least my dealer does. I would just go to your local auto parts store and pick up a gallon of the orange Rain-X washer fluid. Run the washers until the tank is empty and fill it up with the Rain-X. I believe it is rated to negative 20 and it also has chemicals in it to keep ice from sticking to the windshield making it a lot easier to clean off.

    I don't think anyone has done a heated nozzles mod.

    x2, not a problem with the nozzles, just cheap fluid. If you really want, you can buy heated nozzles at JC Whitney.
