Windscreen washer jet nozzles 2009?

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

I thought there was a guide to change these to the better mk3 ones? 

 

I'm hoping it's easy to do,  need to replace mine asap 

 

I should get it checked for blockages too, is it easy to do? 

 

I'm hardly getting  any water through mine at all now 

 

Cheers

They should be heated on a Zetec, along with the heated windscreen.  It's only the Studio/Style where they were optional.

As above though, it's not likely to be the jets at fault, there's a rubber filter over the pump that gets clogged with muck.  It's that that you'll need to clean.

I bought some from paintmodz in gloss black. The mist type is much better imho.

I did this very thing on my 58(09) and it was the best thing I'd done, didn't need a pump upgrade, etc. The mist jets actually saved me money as they used a lot less fluid for more coverage and the heated bit was a bonus.

They're about a couple of the only bits I took off before I PX'd lol, those, the wheels and the bulbs were about the best bits of that car!

I'm so glad the newer ones are standard now, saves a bit of headache of putting up with naff ones and expense too for something so quick & simple.. Call me spoilt but it's definitely the little things like that.... 😅

Mist jets aren't even a new thing, they should've been standard on the Mk2 Focus really!  

Citroen Xsara's had mist jets in the late 90s, they were a common upgrade for the 306s...really cheap new at the Citroen dealer as well.  I went through no end of them as I fitted them to pretty much every 306 I bought along with a set of Bosch Aerotwins! :laugh:

If anyone meeds a pair of original heated mist nozzles, I have a set from my previous car that were swapped out for painted ones.
£10 for the pair so say £12 including postage.

i changed them both, still nothing coming out, eventually water started coming out, these nozzles are so much better, the system if working again, thought it was still a bit crap come out, so took it to my local, he cleaned the system for me, although its a lot better, i think the pump could do with a change

 

easy job to do, even by my standards !

well worth the money, because now i got clean windows 🙂
