Windshield Washer

Windshield Washer

Holding the washer lever produces sound but no fluid to the windshield. Further investigation shows the washer tube doesn't extend above the driver side frunk air dam. This resulted in wet frunk metal and plastic surfaces and a puddle of blue washer fluid on the garage floor. BTW, the Owner's Manual doesn't say what the fluid should be. I pulled the washer tube over the air dam, but that then sprays fluid onto the car roof! Though I will say it has a strong fluid pump. Does it work better when driving down the road? Will try, but doubt it.

I looks like the S needs a tube clip to keep the flow over the dam and not into the dam. Or do I need to drill a hole into the dam to hold the tube and bypass the dam?

PS. I took a chance and added water to the washer fluid reservoir. So the puddle is diluted blue.

Take it in for service...mine sprays just fine onto the center of the window whether I'm driving or stationary!

This is happening to my car as well. I press the wind shield button and nothing is spraying. Have to check if the fluid is dripping to the floor when parked.
