Anybody tried using their rear windshield washer jet yet? I finally figured out how it works (reading the manual) and it doesn't work! Don't know if it's too darn cold out or if it's broken already. I'll probably be parking in an indoor lot tomorrow for the day, so I'll try then, but anybody know how to debug this? The front ones work fine and I can hear the "wrrr" sound from the motor trying to pump the liquid all the way to the back, but no liquid ever comes out.
Yeah I had one of my front nozzles freeze up for like 2 freaking months last year on my Pro5, what a PITA. Try the methol hydrate or your indoor parking may help matters. Make sure you have the blue washer fluid in there though I'd be suprised in any cold climate that a dealer would put the summer stuff in there.
I just hosed down the car a couple of days ago... and that was indoors, so I don't think that caused it. It's just simply that the system was never ever used I guess and it's clogged with ice or something because it's so damn cold. I'll park indoors and it should solve the problem tomorrow. I didn't even know there was a nozzle until looking at the car today. Oh well... :roll:
