Headlight & Rear window washers #1104784 01/05/19 04:13 AM

Happy 2019, y'all! Haven't posted since last year!!!

My headlight washer and rear window washer had both been working, but when trying to use my rear window spray yesterday, I noticed it wasn't working. The wiper works fine. I tried the headlight washers and they didn't work either. My windshield wipers and washer function properly. Checked the fuses, they're all fine, and I hear the motor working for the rear window washer. Fluid level is fine up front, haven't opened up the back to see yet, but last time I used it, it didn't seem to be sputtering like it was low. Not cold enough to be frozen. Anyone experienced this as well?

I disconnected the hoses on my "89 Raider and blew compressed air backwards through the nozzle and hoses. I then washed the tank. There were pieces of junk in there that were plugging things up.

Thanks! I'll give that a shot! The tank for the rear window was pretty low so I filled it up, but it's still not coming through, even though I hear the motor working. (My headlight washers are ok, actually, as they were redone by the PO. Lights had to be on to work, duh!)

May have to remove the nozzle and soak that in vinegar. Then blow out the crud.

Thanks for the ideas on this thread. I have the same issue with my Gen. II Pajero headlights. Didn't know that the lights had to be on, but I suppose that makes sense. I can hear a click after a second or two and I expect there's a relay or circuit breaker doing its thing in the line. I'll try the vinegar idea.
