Thanks! That answers it - my top nozzle is broken:



The nozzle is stuck in the end of the loose hose. I wonder how long it has been this way - never caught my eye before this, but I don't use the washer system as I try not to get caught in the rain. I don't recall doing anything that might have broken it, could have been this way for years. Now to find a replacement part.

If you have the broken end of the nozzle perhaps a little crazy glue until you locate another bag?

I'll give it a shot next time I am with the car, which might not be for several weeks. I am pretty sure I saw it stuck in the hose. I think the top part with the nozzles is a distinct part, but as it's probably a fintail-specific part, it has been out of production for awhile and might not be easy to find. The hose is safe where it is, and isn't vital - I can work on it, which is a good feeling.
