Headlight Washer/Spray Fault

Post by Jhonmicky » Fri Sep 06, 2019 2:08 am

Hello everyone,,
Car: 2002 v70

On the left hand side of the car the headlight spray doesn’t spray any fluid, the right hand side does.
I cannot see any dripping under the car or around the engine bay to indicate a leak.

Any suggestions on where I should look for the fault?

Neither headlight wipers work, but I think I need to remove the front bumper to fix this so will leave this for warmer weather.

You could have a clogged "squirter"

Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.

Check the hoses, but if they're in good shape the sprayer itself could definitely be clogged up.
