problem details
Water does not spray high enough on front windshield. So it can't clean the glass.

WIPER FLUID DISPENSER STOPPED RELEASING THE FLUID.
I had to have both my washer dealies replaced, of course I did this my self because they wanted to charge me up the whazoo!! I have no knowledge of cars or anything, but I got them replaced.
Windshield washer fluid hardly comes up enough for rhe blades to reach and clean the windshield
Pull the lever to was windshield yet, nothing comes out. Fluid is in the tank

I have had an ongoing issue with these fluid dispensers coming out. I have had to replace them four times. Once on the drivers side and three times on the passengers side. I now have three in stock just because..... I never know when it is going to fail me again. They are cheap and do not spray properly. I would think GM would use a better quality part for this, but I guess they had to 'downsize' just like everyone else, but they sure didn't downsize the purchase price of the vehicle!!!!! I sometimes wonder if General Motors didn't change their name to 'General Value' Motors!!!!!
These are real cheap and shame on them for even thinking saving a few pennys was worth the hassle. Cheap nozzles made of nylon are pressed in and cause bad spray or come out completely. GET REPLACED IF UNDER WARRENTY!! I have 3 times and need to again. This will be an ongoing problem.
