I tried unblocking them with pins, but they turned out to be really blocked. In the end, I simply bought some new mist washer jets on eBay. It was like £5, and I was going to upgrade anyway. I simply fitted them myself by hacking them slightly, by trimming down the plastic stumps. Do NOT cut off too much, or you will need to buy some more as they won't ...
I've personally had success clearing these nozzles using a sewing pin; the type that a seamstress may use to pin a garment together just before it is sewn. You can not only use the pin to clear the nozzle but you can also use it to adjust the area of the screen that it's point at once it's been cleared.
The Nozzle is the bottle neck, therefore that is the most likely place for a clog. Pull the hose from the back of the nozzle and use a needle to clear the blockage and reattach the hose, making sure that no debris are remaining in the hose/nozzle.
Some owner's manuals will recommend using a needle or small pin to dislodge debris that causes clogging or misdirection of flow. It is normal for the spray nozzles to get clogged in dusty environments; you shouldn't have to replace them.
