Just purchased a set of Heated Mist Type Water Jets found on the New 2011 Focus.
From Paynes Of Hinckley

H
To Purchase the Heated Version £2.93 each exc. P&P Part Number: 1708797 Click Here Top Seller 100%

To Purchase the NON Heated Version Part Number: 1708796 Click Here to Contact Seller
Or Contact your Local Ford Dealership to Purchase.


Please Note: If you are unsure that you Ford has or has not got heated jets, purchase the heated version and when fitting the jets, if your system is not heated just tape the electrical plug to the water hose, the system will work just the same.

Thank you.

So time to get fitting smile.gif

Lift the bonnet on your ford, and ensue the ignition is off, and keys out of the car,

Begin to unclip the eleven clips that hold the bonnet insulation pad in place simply squeeze the two sides in towards each other and gently pull outwards then store them neatly together. Preferably cut a plastic bottle in half or an empty Pringles tin to store them all in, until required for re-fitting, this type of temporary storage is good practice for working on your car, as if one is lost this type of part can be a nightmare to replace,

Once all clips are removed gently flap the pad down towards the engine and gently pull out away from the car in a straight line,

Store this Insulation part preferably in a vertical position, indoors away from wind, and any risk of it being stood on during the change over process,

Once this is out of the way, unplug the water hose from the bottom of the current jets, by giving a gentle tug, the pipe should pop off and a small amount of water is expected,

Then to remove the electrical connector use a flat screwdriver to lift the clip and slide the connector out from the socket,

Finally as seen in the picture below, press the clip on the jet in towards the pipe and push upward to the top surface of the bonnet, the jet should pop out of place, gently remove and replace with the new type,

Place the New Jet (Pictured on the left in the pictur above) in through the hole

Posted Image Then connect up to the Water pipe and loom

Posted Image





follow the same process again for the opposite side of the Bonnet,

Next and Final Step is Replacing the Cover


Take two clips in your hand and lift the cover also with both hands,
align the cover to the bonnet of the car ensuring the 4 curved pieces at the bottom are all in their metal pockets at the bottom of the bonnet

Posted Image

then with one hand holding the insulation tight to the bonnet, use the free hand to insert the two clips in to the holes at the nose of the bonnet.

Posted Image

this will better support the cover while the remaining nine clips are re-inserted back in to place,

Posted Image
close the bonnet and test the new Jets.

Job done B)

Also as these jet use a mist rather than a stream of water on your windscreen, the mist type will be more efficient than the standard type jets, making your water bottle contents last longer, and with better windscreen coverage for cleaning.


Please see Video Below Compiledby JohnH

The Model used for the purpose of this Guide is a 2010 Mk2.5 Ford Focus Style Manufactured July 2010, other Ford model styles may vary in the fitment of the bonnet insulation, however the fitting process after the insulation has been removed will be the same across the range.

Hope this helps and feel free to add more information on your experience in fitting to your Ford Model e.g. Fiesta, Mondeo etc. To better help others.


Thanks For Looking!

You've fitted yours to a Focus? I've fitted the heated versions to my mk7 fiesta but the Fiesta doesn't have the wiring for heated jets. Any idea if it's possible to add this?

Yeah The Mist types are only standard on the Mk3 Focus

not the Mk2 or Mk2.5 Unfortunitly


I'm sure the loom piece is available mate and should be the same kit across the board (ford Range) as the Heated Jets are the same across the range,
you would need to get the Gem synchronised to operate the heaters when the screen de-mister it activated, your local Ford Stealer should be able to do this at a cost of £50 just to hook the car to the Laptop!

I also have the heated element fitted in the windscreen so can't say I've seen much advantage to the heated jets themselves,

there is also a universal kit available on the market that heats the water from your washer bottle as it passes through it,
the water in your bottle stays at ambient temperature, but the box heats it up as it flows,
hooks directly to the battery and a switch can be fitted to switch off in summer months if you wish to.

Click Here their tried and tested mate, on the market nearly four years since i read about this brand of heater,



Heats the fluid to 65oC in 30 Seconds as it flows through it's filter ''Probably the best performance Mod available for the fiesta''
:P .....Sorry had to type that mate :D

''my car can heat water from O-65 oC in 30 Seconds, Cup Of Tea Anyone?"


On a serious note though I reckon this may be an easier option than buying looms from ford,

It's guaranteed to fit your car and with the same if not better results.
And if you ever decide to sell the car, this can be easily removed and placed in the new car.

Thanks for the comments, hope this helps.

Thanks,
Their Brilliant, nice even coverage over the windscreen and makes suds of the fluid which grabs the dirt allot better than previously with fluid,
Tank of water will also last you allot longer too.

Iíve just fitted a boot light from your model and year in the opposite side of the stock one in mine today,

Ill post the guide later. B)

Lenny, I've had a look on eBay and can find them for £20 or so but there's no mentioning of them fitting the MK5 Fiesta like mine. It says they're for MK6 onwards. I can't see there being that much difference, what do you reckon?

If not I wonder if they're available in a more universal fitment, as they can't be that different between cars.

I will measure and take some up close pictures of the original ones later, they are identical to the mist ones except for the nozzle,
ill PM you the pictures and measurements then you can compare size to your own jets in the fiesta,

also click the link i have in the post at the top of the thread there on e-bay and alot cheaper than the bandits trying to sell them for £20 :ph34r:
or Click Here there ya go mate.

Thanks mate, that's fantastic! Yeah I just realised you put a link to them, much better than £20+. If they're a straight swap then it will be a no brainer at this price, dead cheap :)

Cheers :D
