    Washer Jets Question

    Since the local council have started gritting the roads at any opportunity my windscreen is getting very dirty and I'm not a fan of the S3 washer jets (2 jets per side).
    I have a Vw Polo 55 plate and its washer jets are far better, more of a fan spray across the full windscreen.
    Does anyone know if these would fit? Or if there's an Audi equivalent which I could order?

    I believe the Passat has fan jets which can be made to fit.

    EDIT: here you go :- Fan type washers jets

    Yes, they are heated. The standard ones in my car are heated as well !

    Why don't you unclip yours and see if there's a wire connected as well as the washer pipe ?

    So confused by this, I have the standard 6 jets on the front and find that's ample + really effective.

    They're powerful and cover the whole windscreen.

    Mine are powerful, just dislike the way they spray the washer fluid and prefer a fan effect style. I'll try and get a picture of what mine are like today.
