96 Explorer - Wiper / Washer nozzle

Seems like a trivial problem, but, when driving on the interstate in the
North East following salting and sanding its a pain. The problem is that
when I toggle on the windshield washer, the driver side sprays fine. The
passenger side = NOTHING!. I traced the
*** tubing under the hood and disconnected the "T" adapter. I had someone
push the lever and fluid does come out of the side
where the passenger nozzle usually connects. I got a straight pin and tried
to clean out the nozzle. I put back the "T" adapter and STILL NOTHING.
Any ideas how to fix it. Someone told me to get an air compresser and try
blowing out the nozzle?

Bob,  the compressed air gambit will work, but blow from the outside after removing the ***
tubing.
If there is a bit of debris clogging the nozzle you want to blow it away and not either recycle it
back into the system or wedge it more into the nozzle.

Charlie (been there, done that)
