USA 97 Camry Windshield Washer Sprayer

My first visit here. I am looking for a third party source for the windshield sprayers that are mounted on my hood. Toyota Service wants $22 for each one, and I need two. Does anyone know of a reliable and inexpensive source for these sprayers?

Thanx,

Excuse my curiosity, why would you need to replace both of them?

N.E.O.

I've got two I will sell you for $15.00, off a 1996 camry. Not sure if its the same sprayer on a gen 4 but I'm pretty sure.

Why do I need two sprayers? Because both of them spray over the roof of my Camry. Both have been clogged from calcium in the water, both have had straight pins stuck in the spray holes to clean them out, thus causing both of them to now spray over the top of my car.

You can use the same pin to aim them down lower, they are kind of like a ball with an orifice in the middle to spray the fluid.

I use a steel guitar string to clean and align the nozzles.

You should aim them a little higher when not moving with engine on.
With engine off, the spray is not as powerful and the coverage will be different when you drive.
When you drive, then the spray area should be correct.

So those nozzles are mounted like little ball joints??? Well I'll be!!... a couple of mine are mis-pointed a little, but I never bothered to check 'em out. Learn something every day around here! I bet a sewing needle would work well to adjust them, eh?

Personally I would change those nozzles if you have a GEN3 camry. I hate the 4 line spray. I love the ones that mist the entire windshield, like GEN6 Camrys. I think

The fans spray does not give as good of coverage to top of windscreen when you experience high winds or when you drive on highway.

Does anyone know how to remove these?

I can't find a way to pull them out.
Both of them broke on the underside and I need new ones now.

Open hood, peel back sound deadener blanket, locate fluid line going to nozzle in question, pull fluid line off back of nozzle, use needle nose or reg pliars and squeeze each side of nozzle as you push nozzle out of hole in hood, done.

Yeah, I called the dealership and they wanted $19 each.

So I decided I'll fix my broken ones!

...and I did!

I'm so happy I have sprayers again.

I know this is an old post, but I need to resurrect it. I need one (but will take both if necessary) one spray nozzle for my 96 Camry. The old one cannot be repaired, thus the need for a replacement. If anyone has one, please leave a message here or PM me.

thanks,
Mike
