    Because I don't care enough to spend money on it. Maybe some other time when I need it. I coasted my car around barily able to see though the windshield because it had a huge layer of dust on it, and I was fine.

    Im sure you could get creative and rig something up...... Maybe get a marine bilge pump, and then hook it up to the nozzles...... A pump is like 19........

    Re: Windshield Wiper FLUID

    I've been watching this thread just to see where it was going. I'm not that familiar with 60's vintage Caddys but as I recall, the pump is a mechanical unit located on the front of the wiper motor. Those pumps are notorious for going bad. They're cheap and easy to replace or you COULD replace the whole system with an aftermarket inline electric pump and a switch.

    This happened to my 75 Deville, I replaced the pump and it worked fine, then I opened up the old pump to look at it and it turned out it was blocked by a piece of plastic. This doesn't really help, but I'm just saying..

    Then you may just try and take apart the pump and clean it out!!!! At worst you'll have replace the pump, so at least trying wouldnt hurt......
