Pressure Washer Repair – Replacing the Spray Wand (Ryobi Part # 308494065)


Is water leaking from your spray wand. If so you probably need a new one. The spray wand attaches to the trigger handle. The nozzle attaches to the end of the spray
wand. There are three common issues that will cause
the wand to leak. A damaged o-ring where it attaches to the
trigger handle, a damaged o-ring or coupler where the nozzle attaches or a crack in the
plastic housing caused by dropping the wand or from freeze damage. Replacing the spray wand is an easy repair
that you can do yourself. I’m doing to show you how. Hi, I’m Mark Sodja. Do it yourself repairs like these are easier
than you might think. From lawn machines to cordless drills, kitchen
mixers, outdoor grills, our how-to videos walk you through each repair from start to
finish. So, doing it yourself means never having to
do it alone. Let’s get started. To replace the wand I’ll first removing nozzle
that might be on the end. I just pull back the coupler and pull the
nozzle out. Now I can remove the wand from the trigger
handle. It just simply twists and then I pull it away. Before installing the new wand I’m going to
put a little grease on the o-ring. The grease will make these two parts to go
together a little easily and extend the life of the o-ring. In this case, I’m using little bit of silicone
grease. Now I can install the wand into the trigger
handle and give it a twist to secure it. Now, I can reinstall the nozzle to the wand. The pressure washer is ready for use. Be sure to check back often for new videos

    Any idea on the size of that coupler in the tip of the fun. Ours flew out and it won’t stop spraying with power on. Thanks

  • Rodney Pike says:

    Seriously! Part is no longer available! Why make a video on how to replace a discontinued part?

  • luis alanis says:

    Can i replace with any after market wand?

  • Mark T says:

    What size is the O ring !? Thx

  • jpass12 says:

    I have the same problem. The o ring looks in good condition. In my opinion, Ryobi pressure washers are disposable. I really hate mine. I has less than 3 hours of use and it leaks at the wand. Garbage. Would never buy again.

    Why do you place your hands in such a way as to obscure the direction in which you are twisting the wand? Some of us out here are really starting at ground level and don't know whether it should be turned clockwise or counter clockwise.
