Hey guys.

The washer fluid shooters on my hood are not working. They spray but barely reach the window. Do i have to replace them or can they be repaired?

They're called nozzles :p And pop your hood and check the washer hose where it runs from the body to the hood. It's probably all cracked up - very common, cuz Ford decided to use a rigid plastic hose in a spot that needs to flex. You can pick up a new hose that runs from the joint by the strut tower to both nozzles from the dealer, or you can just cut off the broken section and replace it with rubber hose, which is what i always do.

I just replaced my previously repaired washer hose with the Ford OEM part - but don't know where the black clip attaches that is on the supply end of the hose. I'm guessing somewhere in the strut tower area? Anyone got a picture for a Gen 3?

It just presses down over on of the top strut studs.

you can also try and use a can of air and take the hose off under the hood and blow through the nozzle to blow out anything clogging it i've done it several times with mine
