That's my new fan washers ordered, my last car had them and they were much better and I never had to adjust or had any blockage problems as I have had with the standard ones on my S3. Looks a doddle to fix after viewing the video!

Here's the video as requested. I'ver never made a YouTube video so apologies for the lack of sophistication. Just sorting a problem out.....will repost (realised I posted the unedited video where I swore)

Corrected now.



Thanks that’s great. The last thing you said about adjusting and putting the wipers in the service position. How do you do this? Is this to enable better access?

Yes it gets the wipers out of the way so that you can access the adjusting screw. In fact, I've never had to adjust mine. If you do it's a T10 torx.

To get the wipers in service position: unlock the car, switch the ignition on and then off again, hold down the wiper stalk. The wipers will "park" in the up position.

Great thank you!

Wow! Brilliantly done mate! I'm sure this will help other A3 drivers as well. Those ridiculous pistol jets are a disgrace for a 25k+ car. Thanks!

Thanks. You’re welcome.
