WASHER NOT SPRAYING CORRECTLY

1996 Chevrolet Tahoe • 2WD Automatic •

1998 Chev Tahoe - the righthand windshield washer gushes fluid instead of sprays. Is the "sprayer" a replaceable part? Or is it part of a larger component?

Oops selected 1996 instead of 1998 when creating question

The nozzle may be separate, or it may be part of the wiper arm. Is there a possibility that the hose leading to it has been pinched or ruptured.

The problem was definitely the nozzle -- it was gushing rather than spraying. Most of the water hit the windshield below the wiper arm.

The nozzle is a separate part 022072439. Same part for both left and right because the hoses feed from the left.

Part snaps into the cowl vent cover. The catch is that the cowl vent cover and both extensions have to be unscrewed to remove the old one and insert the new one.
