Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

Hi all,

Sorry to reply to this old topic, but the problem is still the same.

I know the problem is on Grande, Evo - and now have a 2012 Punto : still bad as it was in the first GP in 2005... This mean since 7 years Punto's users have issues with windscreen cleaning...

I searched a lot : I was hoping that someone has made a new jet nozzle that works better... but I not found a direct replacement part.

The solution is to modify the existing. If I understand what was posted, they were two solution :

1. Inclining the nozzles to spray higher on the windscreen
2. Modify the nozzle output to change the jet shape

But unfortunatly, here there is no informations for the first solution and no more pictures for the second....

In the past, I already tried the first solution, in static operation results was good, but when the car was running it was not a great improvement as expected...

So, anyone has a solution ? A link to a existing part or informations to modify effectively these jet nozzle ?

Any help /info would be appreciated
Thanks Normy19 thanked for this post

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

The first one uses a strip of stick backed rubber which is about 4-5mm thick stuck to the bonnet just infront of the jet and the windscreen to lift the jet slightly it works ok on my evo.....

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

Thank for your quick reply

If I understand well, the goal is to make a deflector for the jet ?
Just tried in 5 min, result was just a little improvement.

The thing I dont understand, that the jet is too low, it hit the wiper arm and is low on the windscreen. But, in my case, the roof has quite a lot of washing liquid !

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

No, I still don't have it... but I was informed from ePer that it was a modification recently.

you can see the old and new numbers and differencies in this post:

http://forum.index.hu/Article/viewAr...8633&t=9128494

These available at Fiat dealers or thru ebay.it for example

(I read many people complain about washer so it was high time to replace the jets...)

We will try it soon....

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

Hm. I thought it would be clear for the first sight

So these are the current, latest, and modified ones:

51927099 (RH) 51927098 (LH) -> replacing (18.11.2013), actual

Right and left are different... maybe the angle of the "beam"

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

try it at one of your Fiat dealder. In my country it is available for order and necessary to pay 50% deposit for the order.

Dont worry it was the use of replaced, Obsoleted followed by the new part numbers that confused me.

usually that phrase would be used followed by the old numbers such as

Part "New" replaced obsoleted part "old"

But i know English isnt your first language


I telephoned www.shop4parts.co.uk which is located about 25 miles from home to clarify the parts are correct, they are ordering me them from fiat then shipping them to me, (and they speak Yorkshire English)



If the washers are like the old ones the drivers side and passenger side only difference will be the length of the rubber tubing. In the UK specification the drivers side pipe was about 1m long and the passenger side was about 300mm long I would guess that the left hand drive order number will be a swap of hose lengths as the screen wash bottle supply pipe comes up in front of the left hand side of the car if you are sat in the seat to the Y shape pipe junction

Re: Washer jets modification (lots of pics)

When will you receive them?
Are you going to do some pics about the jets' working and share your expereinces?
So I suppose you discussed that left hand side and right hand side use the same jets.
And are you confident that these come with the rubber tubes?
