So lately my rear wiper, and passenger wiper have begun to stop spraying fluid out, up until recently where they have stopped completely, and now my driver side wiper barely sprays any. I thought it was my wiper fluid getting low, turns out, the fluid container is nearly full....so this means my wiper fluid lines are clogged.

I was hoping someone on here would be able to help me out. I've been told the only solution is to replace the lines. I'm going to try shooting some compressed air down the lines, but is there any chemical I can use to clean the lines out?

Thanks in advance fellas.

Just replace them, it's not worth playin with it..... those lines eventually wear out and will need to be replaced anyways.

Those lines are a generic part they're fairly cheap at an auto parts store. And they usually just are push-on connections, simple as all hell to install......

Another thought, are you sure it's not your washer fluid pumps goin out.

No I'm not sure, how can I check that?

If it helps, I do hear it trying to spray when I try using the rear wiper. As well as in the front, but it still works for the driver side just not as strong.

take a needle or paper clip and clean where the water sprays out of. If it sounds like it trying to spray the pump should be working fine. they dont make anything to clean out the lines but if you want to try bleach it will probably work, although it is corrosive so wash everything out real good when your done.

Yea pumps probably ok.... do what mat said try and clean out the sprayer, that is usually what clogs not the lines.
