Focus kit is the best, got a feeling you'll need an uprated pump and such too, possibly relays and loom to go with. Not aware of any aftermarket ones but I'd imagine they exist.

Wouldnt have thought so. I know you can buy a seperate pump/loom etc but I was speaking to someone a while ago who teed into the existing hoses going to the screen washer jets and just used the existing pump and he said it worked fine

I am doing a full retrofit of xenon including washers. Although it is very much possible to tap off the windscreen washer pump and I initially planned on doing so myself I don't think it's a good idea.

The washer jets them self are spring loaded and water hose size is twice the size of the windscreen hose, I do not believe the windscreen washer pump will be powerful enough to produce enough water flow for that size hose plus opening of spring loaded washer nozzle.

The washer nozzle is very hard to pull out by hand therefore I cannot see the windscreen pump generating enough force for both washer jets.

There are two other options possible. You can buy an uprated pump and replace the original windscreen washer pump or buy an additional pump and drill a hole into the washer bottle installing that pump specifically for headlight washer jets, power for this pump can be powered by the original windscreen pump, by simply splicing into the two wires and running a feed to the second pump, this would wash the headlights anytime your windscreen washer is triggered, or fitting all new washer bottle loom and pumps as factory intended

A template hole may already be on your washer bottle for a second pump but I cannot confirm that.

First two photos of mk2/2.5 washer jets these were taken off an mk2, they are exactly the same minus the bumper cover plate.

Last two photo os a comparison of the hose thickness, small and soft hose is for windscreen, larger and much firmer hose os for headlight washers.

I have two sets of washer jets atm but sadly the second pair won't be for sale until I have completed this mod
