Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

you need to lever the jet back (be gentle) with a small slotted terminal driver then slip the Tie in and withdraw the screw driver..

Finally got around to having the washer mod fitted. I have to agree, it does improve the spray but only slightly.

It's tiny on this, I've had cans of coke with held more fluid that the GPS washer bottle.

Considering I could probably squeeze my own body into the vastly empty engine bay in my 1.2 GP, surely making the tank a lil bigger wasnt too much to ask of fiat.

Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

should be checking oil/water levels every week though so washer bottle size shouldn't be a problem

Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

On a dirty, wet day I need to fill my bottle at end of every day. It really is very small, probably smallest I have had in a car. Also on an icy day it never defrosts, must be really exposed to the elements. Really amazes in this day of 'high tech.' that cars are not fitted with some sort of heating element in the washer bottle.

Whaaaat? I fill mine about once a month, if that!! I Had to fill it once a week on my corsa. Perhaps thats cos the one on the corsa actually works, i never use the one on the GP, its about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

Re: Dodgy windscreen washers

I just had the kit fitted for free by the dealer under warrenty. To be honest it makes a marginal difference
