Okay.....i badly need to clean my Windshield Washer Pumps! I don't know the exact name for them but, they are the 2 things on the hood that the washer fluid come out of and they are both clogged with wax from when i was cleaning my car during summer. Anyway, the fluid goes all crazy and I can't wash my windshield too well! HOW DO YOU TAKE THOSE BUGGERS OFF??? I would try and force them but, knowing me i'd do something worse! Please get back to me anyone! Thanks alot!

I have the same problem. What I did is put a small pin in the holls to clear the wax. That seems to work pretty good, but all I need to do is get the steams aimed better on the windshield.

Taking them off will be way to much work man.... actually, is there a way to take them off.. in any case, what i would do is just boil some water, then place it in a cup or container of some sort.Then ass some liquid soap or dish washing fluid. Mix it up real well and make sure it's still hot when you take it to your car. Then grab a tooth brush and just start scrubbing away while pouring the mixture towards the hole. after a couple of minutes, spray some washing fluid and see if it clears. Do this over and over until it's clear.

I have cleaned the jets on all of th ecars in my family like this and they are all working fine now.
