    They squirt a mist out of them onto the screen, rather than two distinct jets. VW started fitting them in the late 90's but Audi were a bit later to the party so think they came in on the 8P. Also known as fan washer jets as that's what it looks like when they are used.

    I can remember a thread from a while back - problem was that VW have them mounted on the underside of the bonnet rather than on the scuttle. I'll have a search and see what I can find...

    Nope, they definitely require a trim at least. Not a big job though...

    Only done the drivers side as I only got 1 washer to try. Pic should be below I just need to add a small silicon bead to finish it off.

    Didn`t think it was going to work 1/2 way through as its v tight to get the pipe back on as the conection is at a different angle.
