Clogged windshield washer spray nozzle - 2007 Tundra

I noticed a good bit of smegma floating around in my windshield washer reservoir and some of it made it's way to the passenger side spray nozzle clogging one side.

I siphoned and rinsed out the reservoir a few times until I could no longer see crap floating around. After that I removed the nozzle, soaked it in hot water, tapped it on a hard service, blew air through it from both ends, repeated the process and I am happy to report that this fixed the problem.

The toughest challenge was figuring out how to remove the nozzle, I used a key to push the center bottom portion below the nipple toward the windshield and unsnap the nozzle. The rest of the process was easy.

The washer reservoir is currently filled with soft water, I will add de-ionized water after I have used a bit of what is in there, the de-ionized water will clean out whatever buildup is left over without harming anything. RO and distilled water will do the same thing. I don't have to worry about freezing temperatures at this time.
