Windshield Washer

in a 1973 280C, how do you get the winshield washer fluid to spray?

I see in the book, there is a pump (near the pedeals) do you push it once and release, push it and hold it, or pump it?

thanks for the help,

You have to pump it as many times as needed or wanted. It's like a spray bottle. If your not getting anything coming out there could be a leak or crack in one of the hoses between the pump and reservoir or from the resevoir or the nozzle on the hood. Possibly there could be something blocking the nozzles outlet. The check valve at the reservoir could be stuck or the pump can have a worn cracked bellow.
