Hey Guys.

Sorry if this has been explained before.

One of my windscreen wiper jets hardly sprays anything out anymore, I think the jet might be blocked itself. tried the old needle trick but alas, no help. How hard is it to replace these?

Thanks!

If you've got access to compressed air, disconnect the water hose from the nozzle and blow air down it from the top.

If you want to change them you need to,
1 Disconnect the hose from under the bonnet,
2 Again working under the bonnet, use a small screwdriver to sqeeze the plastic locks on either side of the nozzle whilst pushing it up out of the bonnet
3 in most cases the locks on the old ones will just break off, if you are replacing them this wont be a problem
4 push new nozzles into bonnet from top and reconnect hoses.

I had the smae problem. my washer jets were blocked completly so i got new ones.
i had to take off the bonnet lining and snap the bas of the old jets off then it was as simple as screwing in the new washers and putting the hood lining back on.

now everything is sweet
