Yer, i use a cleaning fluide shell sell, its for trucks and works wonders at getting bugs off your windscreen n keeping your "pipes" clean as!
Also desolves any shi* in your washer tank that may have settled over the years.

Pull the lines off of the bottom of the jet itself, then wet the screen by a hose and use the washer button. That way the dry wipers dont sit there going over the screen for ages. This will get rid of any gunk in the line, and then just use a small pin and unblock the line. Then blow through it with a piece of hose pressed against the front with your mouth. Easy and should work a charm. Failing that, get new ones, and not neons....

Agreed. I see a hint of blue and red in the corner of my eye and i'm not thinking "cool wiper jets" i'm thinking "COPS?!?!? WHERE??!?!?"

As above tho, usually just gouge em out with a pin. Mechanic topped me up with a special detergent about a year ago (dont use washer jets very often, ruins a clean car!) and been clog free since then!

Ive read somewhee this is a "no no" - not too sure why, might be one of those myths but i wouldnt do it just in case..
Just use the proper wash with cleans and helps remove bugs off ya window.

I pull the hose of the tank and blow compressed air up it, and use a pin on the holes, that way the air blows the crap outwards.

I am wondering if the BA jets will fit into the cut outd in an ED, they don't jet, but spray a fan of water, very effecient.
