TimmyA did an excellent conversion by mounting it onto the wiper blades.

Just drilled a hole, filed the slots for the tabs and pushed them in. No Glue required.

Check with you states transport department before doing anything. I spoke to an engineer for nsw and qld as well as the department of transport in QLD and the rta in nsw and all of them told me its illegal to move the washer jets. It shocked me and I doubt you would ever have an issue with it but if you check first you can decide what you will do

I would have thought that as long as they squirted water on the windscreen, they would be fine. What a joke.

I had no jets at all when I was borrowing the scoop bonnet and never had an issue. I doubt it would have passed roadworthy, though.

There is no issue with moving the washer jets as long as they still supply water to the windscreen.

Illegal to move washer jets but legal to remove the rear wiper from a wagon.

I am just passing on the information I was told and yes my vehicle isnt currently legal or even have rego but I am working with an engineer to make it legal which is not fun as some things you think would be fine cant be done where other things can be done even when think it would be too hard
