Front squirters arent working?
Can anyone think if a reason why my front squirters wouldn't be working? My back ones work fine? The car is pretty new, so I really can't think of anything?

did you recently install a front tower bar? some tower bars pinch the hose which obviously prevents the washer fluid from reaching the sprayers thumbsup

if not..just check to make sure your hoses aren't kinked or pinched by another means

They are both on the same washer motor I think, so if the back squirt works & not the front ones, its something blocking the hose or pinching it.

That strut brace does sound like the culprit. cool

Yah, the impeller burns out if you run them dry too long.

^^ well they are both run by the same motor i beleive. if your rear works fine then it's most likely a pinch or kink in the hose leading to the front sprayers.

Mine did the same thing, there is a rubber stopper on the Hood that's prolly crushing it, it may not seem like it, but move the hose and secure it with tape to check.

Sometimes the pipes get clogged. You could flush them with water if you have to. If its a new car, the pipes are pinched, most likely.

check the hose that runs along the right fender. If you ever take you engine plastics off then put them on this is easily pinched. Also try squirting withthe Hood open, the Hood could be pinching the line. This personally happened to me, it was an easy fix
