    Hi!

    I don't know how you call it, but I'd like to replace (upgrade :rock:) my windscreen washer jets. I've driven many cars and some of them will have nice spray instead of two streams. Wold that be possible to have those washer jets replaced easily?

    (I hope you understand what I mean ;) )

    Many thanks!
    Chris

    I think the short answer is No, it won't be easy as they are clipped into the trail edge of the bonnet.

    I know what you mean when you refer to the 'nice' washer jet.
    On the 2006 model of a W203 they use two streams
    On the 2007 model of a W203 they have, what I call the luxury even spray type.

    Like Dieselman has already mentioned, it's not straight forward and i believe they cost around £40!

    Ok, I'm happy to pay £40 for them! Can they be retrofited by indie/stealer?

    Cheers

    yes it can be done, its not that hard and i have done it to my w203. i got the jets from a breakers and fitted up in 20 mins that includes a tea break and a phone call!!!! a bit fiddly but not impossible.

    Sounds cheap to me, my standard ones were £28 pound each
