Default Headlight wipers wipe, but with no wash

I haven't had the need to use my windshield washer since buying my '01 S80 T6 last week because the weather has been decent. Today I used the wash & found that while my headlight wipers work just fine, they don't appear to be washing.

Where do I start looking to get them to spray when I hit the wash for the windsheild?

Try yo look through the grill and see if you can see a small hose that would feed the washers.Then follow back. The washer bottle and motors are inside the R/F fender.

Thanks, Tech. I found & checked the lines, and they seemed fine. There doesn't appear to be any leaks, the reservoir has plenty of fluid in it and the pump is providing plenty of pressure to the windshield nozzles. Is there a second pump that serves only the headlight washers?

No the Valve that has one big hose and then 2 small hoses is most likely bad.
Remove the small hoses then hit it and see if fluid comes out.

Nearly a month later, five minutes and a $5 replacement fluid delivery valve did the trick. Thanks very much.
