Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

Tommy save your money.

get a black cable tie,

cut aprox 2" long section out of the middle bend it in half and crush it with a pair of pliers to make it stay in shape so you now have a V of plastic.

Use a small flat screw driver and ease the washer jet towards the front end of the car,

slip the cable tie in with the fold going in first like this __ V_{==\___ to the gap and push down till its flush,

then remove the screw driver...

Job done

Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

No and if you do decide to take the trim off remember the 10mm bolt on the underside which holds the trim in place or you'll snap it

do it from the top.. no tools needed bar a small driver and a cable tie will try to make a guide up but i need to find my digital camera which must have grown legs

Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

right well i just tried it with no luck. I tried the following things.

1. to take the trim off and put something under it to force it up, it looked crap.

2. to force a piece of plastic under the washer as sugguested above, i could not fit anything in under the washer at all, there was not a gap big enough.

Maybe as my car is new i already have the modified washers and they are crap, if not i think i need to order the kit from the delaers as i dont think there is anything i can to to fix it. I might just buy some aftermarket washers and drill them into the trim.
