Posted by Lenny on Dec 16 2013 11:00 AM

Just purchased a set of Heated Mist Type Water Jets found on the New 2011 Focus. From Paynes Of Hinckley

To Purchase the Heated Version £2.93 each exc. P&P Part Number: 1708797 Click Here Top Seller 100%

To Purchase the NON Heated Version Part Number: 1708796 Click Here to Contact Seller Or Contact your Local Ford Dealership to Purchase.

Please Note: If you are unsure that you Ford has or has not got heated jets, purchase the heated version and when fitting the jets, if your system is not heated just tape the electrical plug to the water hose, the system will work just the same.

So time to get fitting smile.gif

Lift the bonnet on your ford, and ensue the ignition is off, and keys out of the car,

Begin to unclip the eleven clips that hold the bonnet insulation pad in place simply squeeze the two sides in towards each other and gently pull outwards then store them neatly together. Preferably cut a plastic bottle in half or an empty Pringles tin to store them all in, until required for re-fitting, this type of temporary storage is good practice for working on your car, as if one is lost this type of part can be a nightmare to replace,

Once all clips are removed gently flap the pad down towards the engine and gently pull out away from the car in a straight line,

Store this Insulation part preferably in a vertical position, indoors away from wind, and any risk of it being stood on during the change over process,

Once this is out of the way, unplug the water hose from the bottom of the current jets, by giving a gentle  tug, the pipe should pop off and a small amount of water is expected,

Then to remove the electrical connector use a flat screwdriver to lift the clip and slide the connector out from the socket,

Finally as seen in the picture below, press the clip on the jet in towards the pipe and push upward to the top surface of the bonnet, the jet should pop out of place, gently remove and replace with the new type,

Place the New Jet (Pictured on the left in the picture above) in through the hole

Then connect up to the Water pipe and loom

follow the same process again for the opposite side of the Bonnet,

Next and Final Step is Replacing the Cover


Take two clips in your hand and lift the cover also with both hands, align the cover to the bonnet of the car ensuring the 4 curved pieces at the bottom are all in their metal pockets at the bottom of the bonnet

then with one hand holding the insulation tight to the bonnet, use the free hand to insert the two clips in to the holes at the nose of the bonnet.

this will better support the cover while the remaining nine clips are re-inserted back in to place,

close the bonnet and test the new Jets.

Job done cool.gif

Also as these jet use a mist rather than a stream of water on your windscreen, the mist type will be more efficient than the standard type jets, making your water bottle contents last longer, and with better windscreen coverage for cleaning.

The Model used for the purpose of this Guide is a 2010 Mk2.5 Ford Focus Style Manufactured July 2010, other Ford model styles may vary in the fitment of the bonnet insulation, however the fitting process after the insulation has been removed will be the same across the range.

Hope this helps and feel free to add more information on your experience in fitting to your Ford Model e.g. Fiesta, Mondeo etc. To better help others.
