Was driving home today and saw that the windshield was a little spotty - time for washer fluid. Pressed the button .. what the hell? Only the passenger side nozzle was working. So I waited about 5 minutes and tried .. voila, both sides were working again.

Anyone experienced this??

Mine did the same thing at one time. One thing to check (and I'm planning on doing a write up on this) is the hoses as they go up to the hood....check that the hoses aren't kinked when the hood is shut. The I/C spray and windshield squirters are in a bunch together....check that. I have to get the hood most of the way closed....pull the hoses back and then close the rest of the way to keep the hoses from kinking.

Also check to see that the nozzles themselves are not clogged. One time when I got my car back from detailing there was a little bit of paste wax lodged in one of the nozzles.

heh,

I took out one of my fuses (I thought it was the cigarette lighter fuse) to let my friend borrow for his WRX after he blew his.

A few hours later, I was driving and tried to spray some IC water. Grand result: nothing. I pressed it a couple times, and kept thinking WTF?? 5 minutes later, it occured to me what the problem was, Replaced the fuse and voila, scary eh?
