Default Washer ports

On my 2000 SC2 the washer holes seem to keep freezing up on me. I have to get out of the car and blow air into the holes. I never had a freezing problem on my 94 SL1 . What can be done to prevent freezing up?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

They may be freezing but more likely they are clogging up. You have to make sure that when you blow the nozzles out that you don't blow the clog into the other side that and make sure that you are blowing the debris out of the lines by disconnecting them at the firewall.

I have seen the nozzles clog on numerous "S" series cars due to crud pumped out of the washer fluid tank. Sometimes the "cheap" blue washer fluid is of less than steller quality. (I think there was a TSB at one point where we put in smaller pump screens). The permanent cure...place a lawnmower style fuel filter in line between the washer pump and the nozzle "T"...they'll never clog up (internally) again.
