In Topic: Relocating The Washer Jets

20 January 2015 - 09:15 PM

Because of the steeper angle you'll find it much more tricky to adjust the jets to fall in the correct place on the screen and the airflow at different speeds will have more effect in deflecting the flow. I found this a particular problem on a white van-based motor caravan. Most white vans have quite snub noses so the jets have to be positioned immediately below the screen. It's almost impossible to get the adjustment right and then it changes depending on road speed.

 Can understand when CV joints failing if a perished boot isn't spotted and all the grease gets flung out but yours sounds like a faulty part in some way.


It's always possible a split boot has been replaced and some dirt got into the joint while doing that.

It seems highly unlikely that both driver's and passenger's lock barrels would be that badly worn. Usually the passenger lock hardly gets any use.


Milton, just to clarify, are you saying that you can't turn the key in the locks or do they turn without unlocking?


Presumably the key works in the ignition lock and boot locks ok?

Strictly speaking, if the thermostat's doing its job that shouldn't be necessary.

I find fiddling with one's knob whilst driving can be very distracting . . . . :D
