Did you check to see if your sprayers are clogged? If you get wax in there it will clog it

You assume they are plugged and then use a needle to push out anything that may be in the way. You should remove the hose from the nozzle so you don't just push the debris back into the line to get clogged again.

I would just look at them closely. Mine have been clogged before and I just kept trying to spray them. Probably not the best for the motor but

Not just holding the thing on spray but giving it like a bunch of quick blasts. It should break it loose! It worked for me and both mine were clagged too.

I had this problem with my 04. It turned out there is a small check valve that was stuck and wouldn't allow fluid to flow in either direction. Subaru coughed up for the new valve and I haven't had any issues since.
