Any tips on why it would not be spraying wiper fluid?

I have summer fluid in there I need to get it out asap if I can't get it spraying again?

Wipers still work just not spraying fluid

DO YOU HEAR THE MOTOR WORK WHEN YOU USE it? - get a tube and siphon out the fluid or add -35c fluid straight - if it stays above -10c, it wont freeze in bottle

you can follow the rubber hoses from each wiper to the bottle - look for breaks - mine got disconnected somehow.

Just add a generous amount of rubbing alcohol to it, so it doesn't freeze up.

Make sure the fuse hasn't burned out.
The nozzles can clog and the washer motor can burn out eventually

You might try removing the nozzles and soaking them in water and white vinegar 2 to 1 for a couple hours. Then clean the passageway with compressed air etc. I tried that on one of my cars and it worked well. Also check all the hoses that run to the nozzles.
