Honda Civic Rear Washer Jet
Similarly found both the internet unhelpful as no sources of jet nor Honda who could not supply a replacement except through a dealer.
I solved the problem as follows.
As a vet I have access to hypodermic syringes and needles.
Firstly I soaked the jet in vinegar to help dissolve any water scale, although you could use kettle de-scaler.
I then used a 5ml syringe with a 23 gauge 5/8 inch needle to flush it out. You can force the mount of the needle up inside & against the long end of the jet, and thus put pressure on the jet. I then did the same again but with a 21 gauge 5/8 needle.
Secondly I used first the 23 gauge needle and then the 21 gauge needle to clean out the metal nozzle.
Both needles will fit into this nozzle beyond the end of the bevel on the needle so you can direct liquid out of the syringe into the jet under pressure.
My jet is now working really well.
Good luck. Go and talk to your local vet if you need help.
