Adjusting Windshield Washer Jets

I was curious, I notice on my Yaris when I am at driving speed and turn the washer jets on to spray washer fluid on my window, it only reaches the very lower portion of the windshield, if Im stopped will it reach the higher portion of the windows, I would like to know is there a way to aim it a little higher cause as driving speed i have to reply on the wiper to get the fluid to the part of the window I visually look out at. I dont know if you can stick a pin in the nozzle and adjust it that way?

I have the same problem,the fluid seems to hit the base of the window and i just get a mist on the rest of the window,when i remember to do it i'm definitely going to use a pin to re-aim those nozzles.

07 has a TSB on replacement washer cowl and/or washer nozzles. the cowl has a different angle point for the squirter....

Huh, when im at speed 50-60mph, my spray goes almost up and over, hitting the top and misting the rest, so if these can be adjusted that would be great.

not sure what that means.

mine does the same thing, but also, the cold weather makes the fluid not flow as well. In the summer, it almost goes over the windshield.

The washer fluid seems to spray the wiper blades more than the windshield!

there's a tool that you can stick in there. itls a screwdriver handle with a little tit on the end you actually insert into the jet and move around.

if you're careful you can use a pick. at least it's that way on mercedes, bmw and chevy and kia.

Here's one of Crashy's 08 ones. They are definitely not the adjustable type. That would make sense with the TSB for replacing the 07's instead of adjusting them.
