I did this mod a couple of months ago and my driver side one overshoots a little too.
I can't see whether they are adjustable or not, i'm sure someone will be able to put me straight in this regard.



i dnt think they are adjustable mate,
i was using the overspray as an excuse to buy some clim-aer wind deflectors :D

Have something to contribute?

Just had another look. Pushed them up with a flat head and there was a bit of silicone holding them in alright.

Got me though, there was a rubber seal that i didn't see left on the bonnet, put on the new one and it wouldn't sit down. Took it off and unknown to me the old seal stuck to the new part. Had another go and it wouldn't clip in. So I had a look, noticed there were two rubber seals so took one off to reveal a slightly angled part which I thought might clip in. Sure enough once it was off it clipped in. Wasn't overly happy as I wasn't using them the way they were made, or at least so I thought.
Went over the other side and the old one left the rubber seal on the bonnet but this time I saw it and I released it was the same as the one I took off the first new part.Tok it off and the new one sat in perfectly.

They're working grand, the drivers side one over shoots the side of the windscreen a little but its grand.

Thanks Lenny!


No Problem mate,
glad you got them sorted out in the end B)

Do these fan jets need much adjusting after fitting?

My old Octavia had them and they were only adjustable in the up/down direction.

I've not found any adjustment in them at all.
They seem pretty optimal as they are but do tend to squirt a little off the drivers side, no big problem though.

+1
The only difference in the nozzles is whether they are heated or not.

Sorry but I'm dissapointed in them :(
I put them on my mk3 Mondeo and they both seem to squirt 2 diffused jets but mainly to the left and right with just a little going straight forwards and one of the units aims to the bottom of the screen.
Just my luck it's the driver's side.
Workable but not what I wanted.
If I hadn't cut the wires so close to the old units to use the original loom as is needed for a Mondeo, I would have put the old ones back on.

I always found that jet washers used to drown the screen but the mist ones cover a better area and clear quicker, none of those annoying dribbles down the screen even after the delayed final wiper sweep.

I'm running out of mods to do on my car so I'm tempted to give this one a try.

Just interested if people get spray on the paint work as well?

Hi mate,
sorry to read that you are disapointed with the mist type jets,
i have my original set of jets in storage, they are practically new they were removed from my focus at 32,000km and are the heated type,
so if you want to change back to normal jets, these jets are the same connection on the end as the mist type and are adjustable just like the ones you used to have on your mondeo,

so if you want them mate please PM me and i will post them to you, no problem ;)
hope this helps.
