Headlight Washer Jet/Nozzle

Recommended Posts

on my 280zx 10th Anniversary model one of the headlight jets leaks , causing the washer fluid to leak out on the headlamp - What do I need to do to stop it from leaking , do I have to replace the jet/nozzle? I guess I could empty the fluid container but I want to use the washer.

Thanks

I suspect it is the pump leaking not the jet

Only one nozzle/jet leaks/omits fluid . if it was the pump I would guess both nozzles/jets would leak??

Not if that one is closest to the pump and the line goes up somewhat from there. The jets are really just open holes on the end of the line. I would expect the pump to be what determines if fluid comes out or not. Admittedly I have touched one in a long time

Thanks , sounds logical - I did have to replace my old pump did it with a used one so that could be my problem, although in the service manual it reflects a  "T" valve which connects the pump hose and then the left and right headlight washer hoses, could this valve be my problem or is this just an open "T" valve???
