Angry Windshield washer doesn't work

Hello everyone, all in sudden I found that the windshield washer of my Hyundai Sonata 2006 GL doesn't work. When I pulled back the control bar, the wippers were swapping but no water came out. I was pretty sure that the water tank was full, and I didn't hear any motor working sound when I did that. Is there any way I can replace it by myself? Or how much does it cost if I go to a Hyundai dealer? This is the very first time that my car had an issue. In the past years I never went to a repair shop except for oild change and other maintenance. Thanks.

Visit Hyundai dealer parts dept (Kia too) for the washer pump assembly..

Swap the pump yourself..flip lower panel out of way and have at it.

Hi,
the pump it self shouldn't be more then $25, and you should change it your self, but first check the fuses or the water tubes for leak.

hope it helps.

Hello, I checked out user manual and think wippers and washer are sharing the same fuse, somehow the wippers do work. I also looked into water tube and there is a lot of water in there. That's why I though the pump is broken. Thanks!

if there's liquid ..., maybe the tube has broken in a connector, make someone start the pump and check if it leaks somewhere.

sometimes it's the hood connector that get blocked with deposits.

Repaired my windshield washer today. Take an analytical approach and don't waste money replacing parts until you determine they are faulty. My manual has a step by step electrical diagnostic procedure which is where I think problem usually is. They have you checking for power all the way back to the source. In my case, everything checked just fine but still no washer spray. Finally, I took the pump out of the reservoir and found that it was clogged with blue goo. I used compressed air to reverse flush the pump and then it worked perfectly. Keep an open to anything. Good luck to you.

Hey Karl, thanks for your reply. It has been raining for quite a while in Seattle so I didn't get a chance looking into it yet. Can you tell me where those steps are in the manual? I didn't see anything about it.

Thanks everyone for all the input....since I could hear the pump running I disconnected the hose at the hood and blew in, it cleared the blockage and now it works. note..open the resivor cap to relieve pressure when you blow in.

The windshield washer pump is the NUMBER ONE part that has been going bad on early NF cars..... Mine is the same '06 2.4 car, but KNOCK ON WOOD it hasn't gone bad YET. But it should be under warranty, if any left.
