Help with Spray Nozzle in Windshield Washer System 1999 SLK 230

Hello SLK'ers,
I need some Help with one of my Spray Nozzles in my 1999 SLK230 Windshield Washer System.

The spray on the driver's side, left nozzle (seated in the driver's seat) has slowed to a trickle. An extremely tiny amount of fluid seeps out when I press the washer button. The other 3 nozzles continue to operate very effectively. I am not very mechanically minded, but, as far as I can tell the nozzle tip is clear of debris. And I'm moderately confident the hose isn't frozen because the 3 of the 4 Nozzles work fine. We're enjoying 15F temps in the Midwest with our first 5+ inch snow storm, and driving with the road salt and snow soot can be a challenge with this nozzle not working.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Any guides which shows what I might check?

Kindly yours,
Douglas

I can only relate to you what I did to my car. When i bought my 02, the passenger side washer was coming out in a trickle....I simply used a very small needle and worked it into the hole very carefully....perfect! It worked like new after that....it's not rocket science, just a piece of crud blocking it.
