Adjust windshield washer nozzles?

Can those suckers be adjusted? I think both of mine are shooting right over the top! I put my hand out the window over my head outside, and spraying the washers, I had more fluid on my hand than on my window!

Garage
I think one or two of mine happen to do this, but I also noticed that it is only when stopped. If I'm moving the airflow over the car makes the spray hit the glass.

Yes, but only on the early cars. They can be adjusted by inserting a pin or small drill bit into the small balls in the early model nozzles, and then pushing them until the spray is where you need it. The cars with the ball type can adjust side to side as well as up and down. The later cars (01 and later) are fixed cylinder types and cannot be adjusted, only cleaned out or replaced. Just remember to spray a tad on the high side as the wind will deflect it downward. As these nozzles are plastic, do not do this in the cold, and do not try and force them as they will snap off and you will have to replace them. If you have a Bentley's manual, it is on page 92-9, but it is also covered in the OEM manual set in much more detail........
