    I have a Hyundai i20, but the washer only squirts a dribble about a couple of inches up the screen.
    I have used a pin in the washer jets and the motor sounds like it is working.
    I should also add, that it only squirts for a couple of seconds and then stops, which means you have to keep squirting.
    Anyone have any suggestions how I can solve this? As this time of year it is getting extremely dangerous.
    Any help will be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Open hood and see if you can detach hose from the squirter nozzle.
    While under the hood, have container ready
    and have assistant operate washer fluid to see if hose if clogged
    If clogged then chase the hose for the point of clog
    If not clogged then try cleaning nozzle from front and back
    Sometimes a single wire from a braided electrical wire will work??
    Good luck
