windshield washer/tire carrier

I have been searching, and can't find a good answer to my questions.

My windshield washer is not working. Is there an inline fuse somewhere on the wireing? Is there a fuse for it period? I don't hear a motor trying to run at all when I turn on the windshield washers.

The other question is about the tire carrier. The stock rear carrier makes a ton of noise off road. What is the down side to putting the spare on the hood, and doing away with the rear carrier? Is there anything I can do to get the rattles out of the stock carrier?


That is why it is called a short cut. If it was easy it would just be "the way."

The fuse is in the main panel before the switch.

Hood mounted tires are hard to see over. When they were 2" wide tires, it was not so bad, but with real tires, it is a large PITA. Maybe your bushings are worn out.
