Can the windshield washer sprayers be re-aimed?

    The windshield washer sprayers on my car are really aimed much too low, such that the upper part of the windshield doesn't get cleaned much at all....

    You should be able to stick a pin in the nozzle and adjust them. I haven't tried this on mine, but that's how every other washer works.

    Mine were too high originally. A ranger fixed them for me rather easily. I didn't see exactly what he was doing, but it was probably the pin thing.

    Had a ranger do that while he was out for some other issue many months ago... basically they stick a small pick / probe (think dentist's office) in the end of the nozzle, wiggle it a bit, then try spraying water to see if it is improved. Repeat many times, while attempting to not get soaked by untimely wiper swings.
