2005 VUE 3.5L
Default windshield washer nozzles

I lost the second set of nozzles over the weekend and was wondering if there is a way to glue/solder the frigging things on, stupid ass design, I can't believe this! Where the hell did saturn get these crappy things?! I don't believe this is common with other cars/trucks? or am I wrong?!


ggrr.....

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Run some searches on here - there is another thread 1 or 2 pages down on this, and yes, it is a common VUE malady.

Didn't Saturn redeesign the nozzles slightly? If so, maybe the new design will fare better.

Knock on polymer, after mine were replaced they have yet to blow up again.

When I had replaced the new nozzle had some more holes than the old one. They were both eventually replaced. The drivers one is not spraying as high as the other but the piece is on. When the blow off the piece the flow is like a hose.

I superglued the nozzles and have yet to have them fall out. Use just a little bit...preferably from a superglue that applies on with a brush. The glueing has no effect on the spray pattern.
