    Hi Folks,

    Does anybody have the newer style 'fan' type windscreen washer jets, or has retro-fitted them into their 8L?

    Just wondering as a friend's 2001 Polo has them and I like how it sprays all over the screen as opposed to the little jets of water it currently spits out. Any part numbers would be handy too...

    Imteyaz.

    I was interested in doing this a while ago, I did find a decent write up on how to retro fit the fan type jets to a passat. I'll take a look and see if I can find it and post up the link, it was really good as it also listed part no.

    I'll see if I can have a look at my friends Polo again to see if they are similar in dimension to our 'water pistol' jets over the weekend too, although I think that the Golf MKIV ones could be a closer match due to the two sharing many other parts.

    Do we have any ETKA geniuses around who could pull up part numbers to see if this was available for the 8L's?

    Would be a good mod. I hate the washers on the s3.
