    Headlamp Washer Jets Stick out

    The cars had 2 new xenon headlamps under warranty and ever since then these have stuck on and off for the past 12 months.

    The car is now out of warranty and they continually stick and I'm at risk of the covers being whipped off at 70mph on the motorway after use, I push them back into place once stopped.

    Has anybody worked on these, do they simply need lubricated ???

    cheers

    Not sure if they are the same as the ones I have on my golf, but I pulled them out and lubed with WD40 then worked them in an out a few times. It worked a treat.
