New and improved washer nozzles

My washers stopped working soon after I got the truck, and it seems to be a somewhat common issue. So I swapped in some ford/mazda "fluidic" nozzles Part number EC01-67-50YA

They are a little smaller so I just JB welded them in and made sure I had them pointed where I wanted.

Sitting still, they tend to put a bit of water over the windshield...

Moving down the road they are about perfect.

The only thing I want to do is replace the line, it has a couple kinks in it and I want to route it so the T is on the driver side (you can see the lower pressure in the video), a bit better pressure. For ~$20 I recommend it. I will get a couple pictures of the nozzles installed tomorrow probably

ok, at what point do you give up and just go a little overboard....

Pulled the fluid tank and flushed it, went with larger hose (7/32)

I tried an inline filter but it built up enough pressure to pop the lines so I took it out.

my loaner phone takes crappy video, and it is hard to see the mist, but it just pumps the water out.

works better when moving, but even sitting still it works great.

Wow. So basically your winshield washer doubles as a sunroof washer as well :wootwoot: . You give that thing any more power and you can disconnect your rear window washer and have a three in one :raspberry:

Of course not. Just keep some spare jugs of water in the TB and you will be fine. I am sure the driver's on the interstate driving behind you will love it when you clean your windshield lol.

At least now I don't need a fire extinguisher in the garage, as long as I'm parked on the same block i can put it out

True story. Yours are quite the opposite of mine. Every 6 months seems like my driver's side washer nozzle/line gets clogged and stops working. I might have to upgrade my lines as well.

Have you pulled the reservoir and washed the tank? I had some grit/floaties in mine that was clogging the nozzles. I also had kinks in the old lines

No, but that is a good idea. I usually just blow out the lines with air.

Not hard once the air box is out of the way

how did u gain access to the nozzles and the lines?
did u disconnect the wiper arms and remove the bolts that hold down the panel where the wiper arms and the nozzles sit on?
