Windshield washer nozzles are too far down the hood
 
Nozzles drives me insane. I have a long gravel driveway, get dusty and wipe my truck down at least once a day with spray detailer, a sickness I have. I buy spray detailer just like some people buy a pack of smokes each day. They must put something addictive in that stuff. Anyways.....

What irks me is, I get washer fluid spots all over above the nozzle area because nozzles are too far down the hood. And If I am a hair dusty it makes mud. I have to clean up the area and thats the hardest part of the truck for me to reach. Its not like its a quick wipe, I have to pull out the step ladder and can only do that when at home. I can step on the tire and pull myself up but risk scratching the truck with my belt, wedding ring or pants button, plus I am getting older so I try to avoid moves like that these days, do enough of those movements at work in my construction job.

My nozzle rant...... even though its minor.

I feel your pain. Dog gone truck is too tall for me. I have to use a heavy duty plastic step stool to clean windshield or wax middle of hood.

It is dumb that they even come out of the hood, not sure why they didn't bury me in the plastic under the hood behind the wipers. Ugly and bad design.

Hope you don't have to buy one of those spray things! Ice broke one on my '03 Dakota, $18.00!!! Was dealer only and none at salvage yard.
