windshield washer sprayer

Looks like I have a broken washer sprayer or hose has gotten disconnected. When I hit the washers, fluid pours out near the driver side sprayer fitting, nothing from the other one. How do I get to that to fix it? Tried removing the cabin microfilter for access but couldn't get to the spray nozzle?

Yea, the hose going to the nozzle has probably cracked or broken off.

Take the grill off the hood, the grille is on top of the hood near the windshield, push down on those circular retainer plugs, and it's easy access to the nozzles.

Be careful the hose will be very brittle and if your lucky you can trim the hose and just slightly stretch to reconnect it.
Put a wire tie around the hose to secure.

Thanks for the quick reply. By "push down on those circular retainer plugs", I take it to push the middle part down?
