Default sprayer nozzle adjustment

The windshield washer fluid nozzles on the hood of my 97 Camry won't
move at all when I try to adjust them. I have stuck pins, darts, and
other pointy objects in there to try and make them spray where I want
them to. Does anyone have a method that works?

I have the same issue im sure dirt and hard water in winshield fluid
has stuck them usualy a pin works maybe something like Lime Away would
loosen calcium deposits and a penetrating oil to loosen dirt, or you can
try a hammer.

The windshield washer nozzles were goofy from the day I picked up my 97
Camry brand-new. I get three solid streams of fluid instead of even
streaming. I never bothered with it. Might be normal.

Just a rant from me on this subject......I've hated the hood
mounted sprayer nozzles ever since they appeared in the late
'80's. The old style that were mounted right under the hood near
the windshield did a much better job & much easier to maintain.
Wish the auto makers would go back to them. Just my 2 cents
worth !!!

For my two cents worth: The manual for my 05 Camry says never to use
pins and the like to clear the nozzles. Dunno why. Every other car
that I've had said that's what to use...... Go figger...

Darned if I know. I've always used a pin with my other cars. I suppose
they want you to go to the dealer's.....

I also had the same problem on a 91. After the pins didn't work, I tried to
use a screwdriver and a lot of force, but it didn't move. What did work was
a small thin paper clip that came with plastic shield. After stripping the
shield off it was thin enough to enter deep into the hole, and the nozzle
started moving. I hope it works for you as well.
