Toyota Repair/1987 Toyota Camry Windshild fluid relay


I have a 1987 Toyota Camry and the windshield washer fluid does not work. I think i need to replace the relay. I have searched and searched but I have no idea where it is located. Can you please tell me where it's at?

Hello, there is no relay for the windshield washers, it is powered up directly through the switch on the steering column, if the wipers work then it's not a fuse issue since both wiper and washer pump are on the same fuse, it's more likely either a bad switch or the pump is bad, if you can hear the pump running check the fluid hoses from the pump to the connections under the hood for a disconnected hose or a hole/crack in a hose.
