    Greetings a.a.v

    This might appear an over-cautious attitude on my part but I thought it
    better to ask, just in case ....

    The rear windscreen washer nozzle on my 1998 V40 is well and truly
    blocked. Poking with a pin simply pushes the blockage back a bit, and it
    returns, as they so often do.
    I will need to remove the nozzle for a proper cleaning, but before I do,
    does any one know of any problems removing the thing? Any delicate
    projections that snap easily, etc?

    Any advice or experiences gratefully received.

    I am not familiar with the design but can't you just remove the hose and
    blow it out from the nozzle end with an air hose? Then run the washer for a
    moment with the hose detached to flush out any debris that may linger in the

    I'll go easy. Neither am I familiar with the design and don't know how
    much slack Volvo have allowed, for the pulling out of stuff.
