I got my 2000 Integra LS about 3 months ago and ever since Ive had it i pull on the wiper stick and the wipers work perfect.

But when i pull the stick to spray on the windshield to clean it the wipers work and move like they are supposed but no liquid comes out of the spraying nozzles.

When I checked the container where the liquid for the wipers is in I noticed the dealer put windex in it could that have messed it up? I checked the hose going from the container to the nozzles and its not clogged or has any holes so does anyone know how I can fix this problem?

Windex is corrosive, and will damage your wax and possibly paint as well. Get it out of there! It may have fried your pump on the reservoir.

are you sure its windex because washer fluid is the same color. also, make sure its not squirting out the back nozzle for the rear window. Sometimes they get mixed up if the hoses were disconnected and then reconnected. Finally, do you hear the pump working when you pull the stalk? If not, your pump is dead.

Yeah my mistake guys Its not windex but washer fluid I assumed it might have been since my knowledge on cars is on beginner status but now that I have the teggy I won't stay ignorant on my stuff and learn bit by bit.

Anyways back to topic I checked and I hear no sound when I pull the stalk and I dont see any liquids come out from the back either. So im gonna check on the pump then thanks for the help guys.

Does anyone know how to go about changing the pump since my nozzles haven't sprayed since I've owned my car. Never bothered to check anything since I usually keep my car pretty clean lol

In the driver side front wheel well. Remove the plastic liner, you will see the container for the windshield washer fluid, attached to it will be two pumps, one for the rear and one for the front. See if the wires are connected, if they are and it still does not work, you will then need to determine if the pump still works or if it is the wiring.

Attached is the best picture I could find when I replaced the CDN bottle with a US bottle on my previous integra. You can find these bottles with pump attached on EBAY for cheap quite often.

Should the wipers move when the sprayers come on, or do I have a bad switch?
Rear sprayer dribbles down window, but does this also.

Whenever I use the sprayer I have to turn the wipers on manually, was always this way with the previous owner also.

That's not the way it is on my '98. The wipers turn on when you pull the stalk to spray and stop by themselves.

in 98, they used the Integrated Control Unit. this unit controls the seat belt chimer, brake bulb check, rear defogger, and oil light.
