Possible to adjust windshield spray aim on 2008 Santa Fe

Is this possible? The driver's side is OK; the sprays hit low, middle, and high within the wiper area, but on the passenger side, they hit low, middle,
and low. When the rain/snow/salt film is on the windshield and I use the washer, the wipers just smear the upper 3 inches of the wiper area.
Since it's the passenger side, it's not a major problem, but it's annoying.
I did some searching and found a post on a generic question & answer site (something like "yahoo answers") where someone said you can use a toothpick to adjust, but since the wind chill is about 8 degrees (central Ohio), I'd really like to minimize any guesswork. I'm hoping to hear from someone with definite knowledge before I try it.
Any responses would be appreciated.

IMO, a straight pin works better than a toothpick. Stick it in the hole and move the ball to the direction you want. Small increments is all you need to move the stream quite a bit.
I also find that the better fluid is worth the money compared to the blue stuff, especially in the coldest of winter. If you've not tried, it do yourself a favor and get some.

Thanks, using a pin sounds better, at least there's no chance of breaking it off in the opening.
I haven't had any problems with the generic blue fluid, what's better about the "better fluid"?

Above 40 degrees, no difference. The colder it gets, the better the yellow stuff is by comparison. The blue fluid alcohol evaporates and leaves some water behind to freeze in colder weather. It can make visibility worse for a while. The yellow has more (or different) anti freeze additives and stays fluid. If you have a coating of frost, forget the blue. The yellow though, helps to get rid of that coating of frost in the morning.

Thanks for the info. I've never realized there was much difference (besides the price), but then I've pretty much always used the blue generic stuff.
I did the adjustments on the spray head, it worked great. It definitely doesn't take much; after I made a slight adjustment, I tested it and thought the nozzle wasn't spraying at all...then I saw the stream going over the roof of the car.

Adding to the fluid, there is a green fluid byh Rain-X that is good for summer use. It helps to get rid of bug residue. On a day oliel today (below zero) I like having the Prestone or Rain-X yellow fluid if the glass has to be cleared and with snow on the ground, there is a good chance it was splattered yesterday.
Glad the adjustment worked OK.
