I have a 2001 525i and the windshield washer fuild does not squirt.
I made sure the reservoir is full.
I also hear the washer fluid pump motor working when I try to make it squirt, but nothing comes out.
I also tried using rubbing alcohol to clean the nozzles from the outside.
Any ideas of what else I could do to get it to work again?
Be careful when removing the tubes as they tend to dry out very quickly and become brittle. I disconnected my washer tubing to find that I had broken them at 3 different points. Little did I know that BMW lists the tubing for $215.
