Awesome thank you. idk anything about cars but since I got my BRZ a few months ago I've been trying to learn more about it and cars in general by working on things myself (adjusted my clutch the past weekend and it was a huge accomplishment for me lmao). The issue with my wiper fluid will be another learning experience I can add to my knowledge database whether I can fix it or not

If its not coming out of either side I would start at the tank and pump and work my way back before removing the cowling. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Before you start taking stuff apart, you can separate the line here and see if anything is coming out:

Perfect! That will reduce the number of possibilities even more.

Once I spot it I'm not really sure what to be checking for. Everyone's just saying to check if it's ok, but idk what looks ok and what doesn't. Please explain like I'm a 5 year old lol
The line we speak of is a soft, black, plastic tube, about 1/4" in diameter. It runs from the nozzles to the pump/washer container.

It starts (or ends) at the nozzles (hidden under that black plastic screening where the nozzles are, up to the pump (running along the top of the front left wheel well).

I'm getting the feeling that you may need someone to help you or take it to the dealer or a shop and have them fix it.

It is almost the perfect first DIY repair you can do on a car. There is very little real damage you could possibly do.

Not to mention the best part...The car still runs so if you can't figure it out right away no big deal keep trying since your not out a car.

That's what I was thinking. I rarely ever even use the washer fluid anyways so if it never gets fixed I'd be ok with it and just having a microfiber towel and glass cleaner in my trunk for when I really need to wipe something off. Though I'll probably take it to a shop if I can't do it

LOL Ya I just noted your location.
I can go through a gallon a week for 5 months of the year and it is critical that it works!

That sucks...if you can hear the pump working and nothing is coming out of that loose end of the hose then it's gotta be a kink or a clog on the pump/reservoir side of things, I would think. Unfortunately there's not really any room to follow that line very far...might have to remove at least the headlight.
