    I was thinking the same until the penny dropped, he's talking about windscreen washer jets that fan the water out rather than just single jets. the mk5 golf has them as standard.

    UPDATE:


    I have brought the washerjets from the Pissrat, and they need a small mod to make them fit.

    the bracket that clips into the bonnet is a smidge smaller so its a loose fit. it needs packing/holding in place somehow. I have fitted them and packed the back out to make them a tight fit with some card board, just to prove that it works. I have had to wind the adjusters to the top (a very nifty screw on the front to wind them up or down) but they work a MILLION times better than the old ones.

    when ive found a neater fix ill post up

    cheers

    Ive had a look on the parts list, and they use the same part num as the A4, so the pissrat ones will fit, but will need a little fettling to fit properly

    the part number for the heated pissrat ones is: 5MO 955 986 9B9 you need 2 of them,

    the will need packing to make them clip in the hole properly, ill try and find a better solution than the card packer i have now over the next week,

    cheers

    Where are people buying parts from? I googled the part number and didn't get anything, and I don't know any links to online stores people may be looking at or use to get parts. Can someone post or pm me some common places?

    Thanks

    any VW dealers, - just ask at the parts desk, or go to your local trade parts place - http://www.thetradepartsspecialists.co.uk/ - the VAG group spares warehouses, very helpful and stock a massive range of bits!

    I want these, What have people being using to pack them out? How fixed are they? Anyone having issues with them moving about?

    Anyone had any issues with installing them?

    NHN,

    At the moment i have just the standard ones fitted and these give off 2 jets of water to the window, these are good if the **** is under one of the jets...

    The fan ones, if i have understood them correctly give off a fan of water, and cover the entire window...

    ah so they have basically multiple holes instead of 2, not exactly revolutionary but good idea overall I guess

    the fan ones dont have a jet hole, the nozzle is a slit, which as the windscreen fluid is pumped through causes the spray to open out and "fan" across the winscreen,

    So I take it Audi don't do these then? Is the only option the Passat ones and to pack them out a bit so they fit in tight?

    its funny cause I picked mine up from my stealers other day, yet to fit but on inspection look identical to my old ones except for the water exit of course, post when fitted.

    read the thread fella as part number is further up.

    also if you're looking to get Vagcom then give me a shout as I'm organising group buy for £221.75 which is cheapest in UK.

    Also got some FBMFSW for sale

    Fan nozzles are also on the A2.

    Note though, you MUST use the correct screen wash, as the regular stuff clogs the fan-style nozzles up, and you can't clear them with a pin.

    The stuff used for fan-style nozzles is different, from memory, it's green...

    They will but as above states they have to be modded to fit properly, wiring & pipes are same maybe need slight extension on the wires but should work 100%.

    it depends, my old mk4 had used normal washer fluid for 7 years and hadnt had a problem, you just need to make sure you use filterd water where poss as it cuts down the contamination and use good quality washer fluid and use it rich. I use tesco pink stuff in mine as i like the smell of the summer fruits and ive never had a problem.


    on the packing out, I have 2 bits of card behind mine folder to make it tight, I keep meaning to make something proper but after 5k miles and 2 months im still yet to amke anything proper but they ahvent moved.

    also Ill look into the A2 washer jets just incase they are a diff part number and a better fit.

    cheers
