Default Help with 2003 VUE wiper fluid

Hey all,

I just had to change the nozzle on my drivers side wiper. I swapped out the part, but now my wipers won't shoot fluid. Is there a priming process? It worked the day before I changed the broken nozzle.

Thanks! I'll go digging & see what I can find. I did notice a lot of fluid pouring out the bottom of the car, do you think that could be from the filter being clogged or could the reinstalling of the nozzle have loosened the hose?

I'm a novice at all of this, so my next question is:

If I want to check the hose connection, what is the best way to remove the plate that covers the hoses. Do I have to remove the wiper bolts? what about the two buttons that hold the plate in place? Can I pop them out with a screw driver, or is there a better method?

Like I said I'm new to all of this...
