Rear window washer spray

Recommended Posts

The rear washer on my 22 explorer has glitch yhat hss me cringe every time I use it. When I push the stalk to activate the washer/wiper, the spray function doesn't start until after the wiper has made at least 1 1/2 passes. I thought maybe the fluid was draing back between uses but trying it as little as 2 minutes later has the same result. Is there a checkvalve involved? Are others having a similar experience? I've found reports of other makes ( BMW, Audi ) but nothing on Explorers or other Fords.

There is a check valve that is built into the sprayer nozzle itself, but most of the rear sprayers tend to drain back pretty quickly because of their location. You may have luck getting your dealer to replace it under warranty if you are still under bumper to bumper, but it may not get a ton better.
