    After the snowy weather I noticed my driver side headlight washer is spraying towards the windscreen and nowhere near the headlight!

    I prized the washer open ( carefully ) and noticed there are two little nozzles to direct the water, or I should say there were two nozzles. I now only have one, wonder if the freezing temps caused the washer fluid to expand and pop it off. There is a circular hole for the nozzle which I assume just clips in but the nozzle is nowhere to be seen.

    Anybody had this problem or know if the part is available separately.

    I'll ask at the dealer when I get my service done, I guess it should be covered by warranty unless they decide I was using the wrong type of washer fluid or some other twoddle!

    Hi

    I have the exact same problem but on both head light washer units!
    Audi claim that i will need to replace both units as the nozzle type things are not sold seperately!
    I think they said about £70 each...I tried dismantlers but hard to come by!
    I posted a thread on this before but got no replies .....

    The jet itself is one unit as you can see here:

    Would they not replace them under warranty?
