    On a Accord CL7, does anyone elses wiper nozzle water come out in a spray rather than a line of water with power? Because mine just sprays very lightly with not much force at all compared to other cars.

    My passenger side one sprays like a hose pipe with kink in it.
    Not sure what the cause is. The drivers side is perfect.
    Does it need a clean or do I check the hose routeing? Not the pump, as the drivers side is 100%.
    Really bugging me at this time of year.
    Ideas? Suggestions?
    Thanks

    Take the afftect jet off and leave it in a small glass of vinegar for 20 minutes and see if the blockage or calcium deposit go ? of just replace it with a new one and see if that makes a difference.

    Must have had some crud in the opening, it's working fine now. Sorted itself, by using different washer fluid

    I bought a kit from ebay that relocates the jets from their original position onto the wiper arms themselves... the kit was half the price of 2 new Honda jets as both of mine were knackered... I did that 3yrs ago and they still work perfectly, and each jet has 4 nozzles on it, which sprays a diagonal cross pattern on the screen either side of the blade... Makes for much better cleaning.

    It was something like this one

    Just adjusted mine now, they were spraying very low and a bit weak, my car came from a hard water area and the nozzles were badly crusted with limescale.
    I used some toilet cleaner dripped into the nozzle and it fizzed away for a while, that helped a little then I used a pin inside the jet to break up any lingering debris and they improved a little more, then tonight I used this guide to adjust the nozzle upwards, I had no 0.6mm screwdriver but I used a 1.4mm one inserted vertically and it worked very well for adjustment, I think the design of these jets is deceptive as they don't appear to throw a lot of water on the screen at high pressure but they actually put a considerable volume on but misted and dispersed.
    I am happy with the way mine are working now, I would still like to have a look at the pump and non return valves but that can wait until I remove the bumper sometime.

    I just realised this is the 7th Generation section! I don't have my 7th any longer but the 8Gen setup works very similar.
    The toilet cleaner I used was pretty strong acid, much stronger than vinegar, plus I took the hose off and used an airline to blow it through early on, maybe that shifted some of the crud that was in them, they seem to be improving now that they are in a soft water area again.
