    Were your old ones heated?

    Doubt they're damaged, maybe as above some grit, get a pressure washer on them.

    Oh, thats weird, someone must have fitted them before then, as they dont come on the car default, is there 3 jets on each side now or its all over the place, just check the washer parts & see if its just a very thin long gap on each one, that denotes fan type, for me its got **** in/blocked unless some git has nicked yours & swapped there's.
