    I would use compressed air. Not full pressure because you will just blow the lines off but you can blow through both ends. At the tank, then the nozzle. Typically it is caused by something getting in there and clogging it. Check the tank for any dirt or muddy goo. Clean as necessary. Replace wash fluid with some concentrate and try to not let it get diluted down too much as the gooey mold will grow again and clog things.

    That was really complicated just for a nozzle... wow

    wat?
    is it possibly affected by the weather up there? freezing up in the winter and it causing something to split or break apart?

    For clogged nozzles I have found CLR on a q-tip works great. For a nozzle that came apart your probably boned.

    Had no issues with my truck and winter. And they've frozen up a few times. Just get out, wack the ice off and away you go.

    Funny...I had a problem with mine the first day I bought it. I don't know what they replaced...whether the nozzles or the pump itself. Haven't had a problem since.
