Windshield Spray Nozzles Not Working

Just noticed while driving home this weekend that the windshield sprayers are not spraying the windshield. You can smell the fluid in the cab after pulling the windshield stick back, and see fluid on the inside of the hood, but nothing comes up on the windshield.

Any ideas guys or is it time for my first dealer service visit?

Geez, only 2,000+ miles down.

Dealer time, use that warranty while you got it!

They probably just clogged the nozzles with wax. I'd check them real quick before you bother to bring it in

Found the culprit: It looks like there is a hose or a terminator missing from the driver side washer. Can anyone snap a pic of what's connected to their driver side washer sprayer?

I opened the hood and had someone pull the sprayer wand back and windshield washing fluid shot out of the right side of the hose-connector looking thingy. You can see it (the phallic looking thing) above and to the right of the blue.

Dont worry, Having them working isnt the greatest either. they leave a big line/streaky mess on the sides.

Might just be a pressure release, I think mine looks like that too, make sure that nothing is blocking the real nozzle.
