Washer Jets

Just wanting to find out if other people have the same problem as me with there jets. At anything over 20mph they are completely useless and spray water onto just the wipers and lower half of the screen. This means i can only look out the bottom half of my screen in weather like this as its the only bit that gets cleaned. Now does this just happen to me or other people aswell?

Common problem Matt.... cant be adjusted, need lifting. Seen a Post or 5 about this... some fix it wedging a cable tie under the nozzles...

Mine used to do it no matter what my fuel economy lol!

Re: Washer Jets

Re: Washer Jets

Im thinking of bodging some to affix to the underneath which spray higher up the screen. Need to have a better look at underneath the bonnet to see if there is any way to affix them.

Re: Washer Jets

My thoughts exactly. I have seen some in an accessory shop that are held on by a plastic nut, so if the original ones are carefully removed from the bonnet panel the new ones should fit with a little bit of drilling of the plastic panel on the bonnet. There is access to them from underneath to tighten the new ones up and connect the tubing so shouldn't be a problem.
