I've ordered both mist jets and the valves - are the valves needed for the mist ones??

Have something to contribute?

Yes, use the valves for all types of nozzles.

Yep, you're right - non return valve's needed!

I fitted the mist jets today, they make a huge difference on the coverage, but the dribbles are still there!

I've fitted the valves, and the passenger side doesn't leak afterwards, but the drivers side does?
Would I need a fit a longer hose or slightly shorter? The ones I have fitted are around 3cm long.

having dove into back streets and drove on the wrong side of the road to avoid gritters and standing water to keep my car clean i was gutted to see these dreaded marks on my bonnet today!

looked on ebay at mist jets wondering if other makes or universal ones would fit and i came across this

http://www.ebay.co.u...=item4cf48b0168

..now i know they wont fit, but i was more curious about what could well be 2 none return valves on each one as standard?

or are they something else?
