My driver side washer fluid comes out but in a weak and thick stream. The right side works fine.

I tried unplugging nozzle with a very thin wire but no luck (I did this on another vehicle and it fixed the problem).

So what could it be? I'm assuming both sides are connected to the same pump so if passenger side is working it's not the pump?

Thanks!

Yea, can't be the pump, just either a plugged/bad nozzle or even the section of hose to the driver side plugged or pinched , check it all out... Maybe just go n replace the driver side...

Tried needle and didn't work. Took off sprayer, pumped fluid thru open hose, used some compressed air and blew out sprayer forwards and backwards. Fixed.

Thanks.
