well... it seems the windshield washer jets no longer work on the FJ. No fluid exits the orifices. Yesterday I checked the obvious.. yes there is fluid in there... checked all the fuses.

And that is where my diagnostics stopped.. where might I look next?

I keep a safety pin in my storage space by the steering wheel. Mine gets clogged up at least once a year and I stick the needle into each nozzle.

well.. i had never had a clogged jet.. so I went out there and cleared out the jets.. I could hear the pump working.. so that was good.. and still nothing.. so I kept at it.. then I heard liquid on the ground. Looks like the nylon fitting nearest the passenger side broke and the hose came off.

So I need a new fitting it seems...

something like:
parts.toyota.com/p/Toy...02300.html

or

www.oreillyauto.com/de...62/4330706

or

smile.amazon.com/Dorma...001C0F4DU/

should do it Im guessing.

update

needed more than 1 connector and a piece of hose.

bought this kit

BingSnow 7 Pcs Windshield Washer Hose Nozzle Connector Kit - 250cm Washer Fluid Hose with 6 Pcs Hose Nozzle Connectors(White) for Most Car smile.amazon.com/dp/B081N5XQBX/

works as expected and the price was right.
