    Lately I noticed that the spray coming out of the nozzles of my 2009 Tacoma is really weak and anemic. I read all the threads and did the air pressure clean to all the rubber parts, removed the nozzles and soaked them in CLR... but no avail... still very weak.
    I found on a thread that the Honda Odyssey 76810-TK8-A01 works flawlessly on a 1st gen... My question is will they fit on a second gen?

    Thanks in advance for your replies!

    The pressure (which you describe as "weak") doesn't have much to do with the nozzles. You need to look at the pump.

    Is it cold where you are? Are you using summertime fluid?

    Hows the pressure when you disconnect the lines going into the nozzles?

    Check for obstruction in the lines.

    Start at the pump checking pressure as you go. Also use air pressure to blow out the lines. Hope this helps.

    I did pass air in all of my lines... I only run winter washer fluid... even during summertime. The pump could be weak but I removed one of my nozzles and I tried to blow air through and it was obstructed. The other thing that tells me it's possibly the nozzles is that one of them performs better than the other, if it was the pump I presume that the jets coming out of the nozzles would be equal?

    I did get a part no. For a Honda nozzle that seems to fit (expensive though). There's a thread in the first gen section talking about this same issue and some guys tried the Honda part ans sware by it...

    What kind of air flow do you get thru the system from the pump with the lines disconnected fromthe nozzles. If one line is partialy blocked you may not get equal pressure out of each nozzle.

    Washer nozzles do clog up. I've had to replace a few on other vehicles, especially after they get old. Pull the nozzle(s) and check fluid flow. If it seems strong, replace the nozzle.

    I can't speak to what works on a 2nd Gen Tacoma. In the past I've used generic replacements.

    Toyota is proud of them - part number 85381-04040

    Check for congealed sludge at the bottom of the reservior blocking the inlet to the pump

    Thanks for all your comments and replies... I did all the test possible so next step is to change the nozzles.
