Default Wiper spray adjusting?

Is there any way to adjust the amount of washer fluid that comes out? Seems to be a lot of occasions when i just need a little bit but cant control the flow. I have a 97 se.

There isn't a known method to adjust the amount. Look at it this way. Windshield is clean every time.

Here'* a good one for you.

Someone follows you too close for your comfort... never hit the brakes..you could get hurt...

Lay on the washer fluid... that'll back them off.

Especially if their car is a little dusty. Leaves mud spots on their windshield...

I think if you hold it for a second or two it will go off.
