First, disconnect the hose (see below).
They usually just snap in. From under the hood, you will see that there are 2 small leaf style tabs that are holding the sprayer in. Just squeeze them together into the body of the sprayer and the unit should slip out the top side of the hood.
The bigger challenge will probably be getting the hose off the sprayer. I had short pieces of hose and a connector available, so I ended up just cutting the old hose. If you pull at the hose really hard, you could deform the hood metal around the sprayer, or tear the hose and damage it anyway, etc.
I don't know how much success you will have trying to clear debris out of the unit. It might just be easier to get a new or used one. My original ones were the 2 jet style. I've replaced them with the fan spray style, but from Honda, not Subaru. Subaru cheaped out and made the the fan nozzle non-adjustable.
Actually, I bought some generic adjustable fan style units from Canadian Tire Corp first. These have a threaded stem, so you can just tighten them down with a nut. They worked, but they flow considerably more volume than the 2 jet style. The pump just wasn't putting out enough to get a decently strong spray. The Honda ones are much better, but even they appear to flow more than the 2 jet ones. The strength of the spray on the highway is marginal. But that is usually the case regardless.
