Just discovered this mod, knew that other makes and models could do this and always wondered with Fiestas.

Does the inital post link still work? I only seem to be able to see the heated ones (http://www.ebay.co.u...=item336ba2ff9b)

the seller that stocks the heated type will supply the non heated type on request,
however they are both the same price and the headed ones will work 100% in a non heated fitment,

so its up to you mate if you want to fit the heated type and snip the connectors off the rear of the jets,
or order a set of non heated,
if you are ordering a non heated set please quote the part number encase the accidently send you a set the same as what you currently have.B)

Fitted these to my mk1 Focus today. Much better. What a brilliant little cheap modification this is. One quick question, Is it possible to adjust the spray direction on this type of jet? I used to adjust the normal ones by using a needle in the jet etc. The mist seems to hit my windscreen a bit low down thats all.

I've noticed a few posts on other forums regarding the fact they are a little low. Pondering whether I should get them, but for that small amount of money I'm sure there is no harm in trying them out.

These wide spray jets are adjustable and are also of similar design to the new ford mist type,

Their a bit more expensive at 9.99 for the pair, but with free P&P Click Here B)

They are a little low on my MK5 Fiesta too, but they perform much better and get more area of the screen. AFAIK it's not possible to adjust them like you would with ordinary jets, so I'm leaving mine as they are.

I guess it might be possible to aim them up a little bit, but it would be a case of moving the actual washers up in the bonnet, if that makes sense.

Fitted them on my lunch break, they're not bad but seem to spray my side windows aswell, which isn't good when you got the window down! maybe it'll be different when I'm driving. I'll let you know.

Fitted mine over the weekend - Cheers for the guide in post 1 - piece of cake to do..

Got to say mine are not too low, slightly low but get good coverage, gets the side windows slightly too like Haylo - but this is just tested at stand still - maybe even better on the move.

Seemed to get a lot of excess fluid on the bonnet though - just cleaned and polished the car before i tested them and it had a nice water run down the bonnet!!!

Great little upgrade - better than the jet ones which i often end up blocking with a snapped needle when adjusting LOL

Hi there,

Just upgraded to a 2011 Focus (1.6 diesel Zetec) from a 2007 (1.8 diesel Sport)
- New washers are a great improvement

Without removing the bonet insulation, is there any way to tell whether the washer nozzle is heated?

Hi All

Fitted these mist type jets to my Mk2.5 Focus, today so easy to fit, done it. Thanks Lenny for you excellent guide.

As for heated jets on other models, if the car has quickclear front screen, expect it to have heated washer jets.... my '87 Orion Ghia i, '92 Esoort 1.8i LX(quickclear optional extra), '95 Escort 1.8i Ghia, '01 Focus 2.0i Ghia, '10 Focus 2.0TDCi Titanium have all equiped with quickclear and heated jets.... something every car should have!!!

fernsie best bet is to pull the insulation from the bottom slightly and check to see if you can see a wire...if so heated. dead easy
