Windshield washer problem

The windshield washers on my 740iL seem to be plugged,but I can't see where the fluid comes from or any tube that needs clearing. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

by this age in your cars life, if you have not cleaned out your washer fluid tank and associated hoses it is probably blocked there -- but it could be as simple as blocked nozzles. get a metal guitar string or similar thin wire to clean out the nozzles. if that does not work check your washer pump and tank and lines. Unfortunately, to get to your pump you have to take off the splash panel just behind your right front wheel. Its really not hard to do.
