These holes allow the product to be propelled onto your Toyota Camry’s windshield. It is very likely that they are blocked, by accumulation of limestone, or various types of dirt. To do this, you can start by trying to blow, yourself or with some powerful equipment, such as a bicycle pump or ideally the tire inflator at your gas station.

How to fix wipers that no longer work

If nothing can be done, try to get yourself a thin, durable object, such as a paper clip, that will allow you to gain access to the interior without losing a piece. We advise that you also employ a mixture of vinegar and hot water to optimize your results.
Repeat the test, if it still doesn’t work, maybe it’s obstructed at a deeper place, at the connection pipe. This is the link between the pump and the nozzle in your Toyota Camry.
To reach it, you will have to open your cover:
You should identify the two hoses specific to each nozzle. Try to tidy them and obviously make sure they are properly connected. Use the same cleaning procedures described above. When they are cleaned, you should manage to circulate water through them without any problems. Then plug them back in properly, and repeat the test on your Toyota Camry. If it still doesn’t work, you now know that it doesn’t come from the sprinklers or the pipes.
After that, you should then check the pump. It is the one who starts the product launch.
You will find it near the cleaning fluid reservoir under your Toyota Camry’s hood.
First test to find out if it works, when you turn on the washer, you are meant to hear a noise when the pump is activated. In the absence of noise, this denotes that it does not work. It will then have to be replaced.
It is a very basic thing to do . First, take out the two screws that allow it to be fixed on your Toyota Camry.
Then, you must identify two power wires. They are mostly black and red. They need to be disconnected, but watch out, they must be reconnected in the right direction afterwards, or you could create a short circuit on your Toyota Camry. A little tip to bear in mind: the red wire symbolizes the + terminal. For example, place a piece of red tape on it to make sure you can find it. Do the same with the black tape on the bollard – . Thanks to this, you should be able to reconnect the wire of the right color without any difficulty later on.
Once completed, you can do away with the old pump and insert the new pump on your Toyota Camry. Reconnect the cables properly using the tip, then just screw the two retaining screws back on.
Now run a test again.
Everything should be back to normal by now.
