Yeah I have a heated windscreen, will wait for the weather to improve and run out.
 
Thanks for your help!

No problem

Well thank you very much! I'm now tempted by a Green Cotton Air Filter! I'm just not sure if I can justify spending the money :(

Also Puddle Lights? Didn't even know such a thing existed :D

Anyway back on topic, has anyone got these mist jets from a dealer recently? Currently going for £10+ each on eBay, but the first post is saying they are allot cheaper?

I made the mistake of looking at another of Lenny's guides and I've been thinking about getting these too! I've searched eBay, Aliexpress, Amazon and elsewhere and these are the best prices I've found... I think these are the right ones (non-heated):

 

Cheapest (from China) - £2.16 inc P&P - there are lots of this type available on Aliexpress too.

 

Cheapest UK seller- 11.98 + £1.00 P&P

 

I need to check whether I've currently got heated jets before I decide to proceed. I like to support UK business and cut down my carbon footprint where I can, but not at six times the cost! If I go ahead I think I'll be placing an order for the first pair!

Lenny should come with a warning...

Have you tried ford themselves?

That was nice of them  :angry:

 

Bit reluctant to use 3rd party ones, don't want the engine bay taking in rain water over the winter  :)

you could apply some silicone to the underside of the bonnet to help seal them,
Maybe an option
