Windshield washer NO Squirt DIY

Wife comes home tells me the windshield washer is just dribbling fluid.. Pump motor is good, pull the line and I can't blow through it.. Put a garden hose on it.. and it's still just a dribble.. I try for about hour,. trying to flush the line.. Still I'm getting no where.. I don't want to pull the cowl.. so I just pull up the rubber seal, lift the cowl enough to pull the line up and see what looks to be a small filter right next to the first spay nozzle.. It's not a filter, but a check valve.. at any rate, it was clogged up.. It comes apart easy enough.. so you don't have to buy a new one.. and the best part, you don't have to pull the cowl off to get at it.. So if you've been putting off, fixing your washer.. no need to..

Ya, Khomer.. It's not until I'm done that I think about posting anything.. I'll post a pic of the check valve's location tomorrow, when it's light outside.....

PS. I was just trying to give you a heads up... It's not the spay nozzles,.. it's the check valve that's clogged..
Thanks Wallyo,.. now I don't have to take pics...
Could be the on the rain-x.. The inside of my valve had what appeared to be crystals..
Sounds good Springer,..for a show car that's been babied.. My ML's main purpose in life is to lead horses in and out of a muddy field.. Not quite the same animal, that you and i have..
Right now, I've got a couple of 50lbs bales of hay in the back,..I guessing yours has never seen a bale...
Now Wallyo,.. you must understand.. That;s for Timothy grass only.. At $25 a pop, it deserves a nice ride
I haven't taken any pics in a long time so I'll put some old ones..

I think I used this for a Christmas card one year,.. Yes, that is a TV in the back ground..

Bobby, how does one go about leading horses out of the pasture with the ML ? Are you just kind of towing them very slowly ?
Yes, that was the purpose of the back bumper guard that I added a couple of months ago..
And double YES.. on MR ED.. The wife's got ED on 24/7 for the "boys"..
WOW... 57 acres... nice.. We only got 16.. and only about 7 of it's pasture..
