    I don't think you will find a diagram of the washer lines anywhere. You will have to follow the lines from the washer bottle, looking for problems as you go.

    The most common place for the washer line to kink would be in or around the area where it passes from the body to the end gate. The washer hose passes through the flexible rubber conduit at the upper right side of the end gate. Each end of the conduit can be remove quite easily and you can check the washer line as it enters and exits the conduit.
