How to adjust windshield spray nozzles?

How do I adjust (and possibly unclog) the windshield spray nozzles on my 2000 Altima? They aim too low and don’t spray as forcefully as I’d like them to.

Using a pin, insert the point in the hole and move them up as necessary.

If the pressure is not as good as you like, just check the lines for dirt or being partially clogged. Time will do this.

I can’t do any better than that. Good advice, wizard.

Agree. Great advice. Depending on the size of the holes, you might need to use a larger pin or even a small paperclip, but the idea is the same. If the nozzle ball is “frozen” in place by dirt or corrosion, applying a drop of light oil or WD-40 might loosen it up.
