Windshield washer spray nozzles

Searched the Forum for this, didn't find anything. Has anyone ever taken out their windshield washer spray nozzles and cleaned them out? My fluid is spraying in every direction, but on the windshield. Most likely dirt and wax build up in/on the nozzle. Afraid to just pry them up. Tried to clean as best I could using multiple tools, but can't get in there good enough to clean them out . Tried looking under the hood for easy pop-out access, but trying to reach over the engine and trying to get at them from the side is not good either.

try just sticking a small needle or pin in there to clean it out. that's all i ever did. and with the pin halfway in, you can adjust the spray direction.

That's what I did too. I have ordered replacement nozzles and swapped them in the past on other cars -

This might be the info i was looking for. The spray is very low and the windshield isn't being cleaned on the top end.

MB always used to provide the aiming points for the nozzles in the owner manual. I haven't seen this in the W210 owner manual. Pity, because the aiming points also seemed to take speed into consideration. Maybe somebody has this information?

I hope it is independent of each other so i can aim just one higher than the other. I was going 80 and still didnt go high enough and i dont think the speed affects it that much.
