And please try this stuff, we had rain and then snow and then ungodly (-) cold! I had my car outside stupidly and used this stuff worked like a charm melted everything right away and I'm not 100% sure but it may work with a direct shot on the nozzles (Bought it at Target)
Good luck everyone, I'm amazed how much people have responded to this issue. Thanks for the help everyone

There isn't a need to park in a garage, I'm a college student screwed to park on the street dang. But if it gets about 15° try to aim the front of your car right at towards the sun at the warmest point of the day whenever that is.

From someone I talked to that sounds like you may have accidentally or maybe have some left over non anti-freeze wiper fluid
Good luck everyone, I'm amazed how much people have responded to this issue

I have also been told and recommended that you keep a bottle of Rain-X cleaner or something along those lines maybe front seat FULLY CLOSED IN A PLASTIC ZIP LOCK BAG right near by the heater that way it will if needed as well keep a towel, this also helps with clearing headlights to improve visibility. But is a great backup if things do fail.
This can apply to anyone, take it or leave it, comment or criticize it, Input is the only way to help others
Lastly be very very very careful, from what I was told you can cause damage to the rear line leading to the hatchback, make sure that the lines in the front seem absolutely 100% clear before you attempt the read wiper.
Happy New Year, Hope everyone has a great 2010, New Decade let's all do our part to make this an outstanding decade
