    Is there a direct replacement upgrade for the front washer jets?

    Was thinking non heated but a fan type spray.

    Seems these are heated jets, can these be retro fitted to non heated original system?

    The standard jets are 5M0955985C9B9 at around £12 each heated one £25 each

    Only just noticed these are jets, are there any mist ones about, other than the Passat ones that need gluing in place :eek:

    The heated ones are mist/fan type, I assume they can be used unheated.

    No need for gluing with the shims.

    ** Edit - Oh, I see... Same fan spray but unheated are half the price, result. **

    Click here for a thread on how to fit. One caveat though. Since this guide was published, Audi now supplies an adapter shim that bridges the gap between the VW part and the aperture in the Audi bonnet, so no glueing required.

    Details of the adapter shim can be found in here.

    see post number 2,
    did you find out about this rob or is it a case of just popping them off to see if they have an electrical connection

    If the jets are heated, they'll have an electrical connector as well as the water pipe. The part number for the heated Passat fan jet is 5M0 955 986 9B9.

    I have just done the washer jets but only after taking them off I had an electrical connector so assume it's heated versions I have??

    Ignore me just read post above. Anyone want to buy none heated versions?

    Having established mine are heated type jets, out of curiosity I wondered if someone can advise when the heating element comes on? And for that matter when do the heated mirrors come on :confused:? I've always assumed mirrors where on when the rear window de mist was activated?

    Mirrors are definitely heated when the heated rear window is on. Not sure but I think the washer jets are heated permanently.

    OMG! When did they start producing shims for these!? :chargrined: I ended up holding mine in place with epoxy putty and went over with a black paint pen to make it less obvious.

    Will this slot straight into an A4 or does it require the shim as well?

    As I understand it they will fit without shims but need silicone sealant or similar to hold in place. Shims are only a few pounds, worth buying I think :thumbs up:

    Anyone know what the small allen key nut next to the nozzle on these upgraded Jets are for? I'm hoping its to adjust the angle of spray up and down as mine is fine when at slow speeds but at high speeds the jet just sprays the bottom of screen :(

    Now that's one thing I do like... If a tailgater is too close I just hold down the washer button. Especially funny if they're a boy racer with a freshly polished car :lmfao:

    Maybe also worth noting that I think the part numbers for the washers are a Skoda part also if that's any easier for folk to get a hold of...... they can actually be foundon ebay if you punt in the part number as a search :)

    Posted this in the affordable mods section but thought worth copying here -
    Annoyingly bought a pair of fan spray non heated washer jets from Shop4Volkswagen when I needed heated. If anyone wants a non heated pair, PM me and I'll post. £20 for the pair.

    I've just done this upgrade to my car but even after adjusting them they are still hitting the bottom of the screen. i think I'll have another look at them today seeing as it's not raining

    Did you like I me not transfer the 90 degree elbows from the old jets to the new ones?

    I had the same problem until I realised I should have done this. I assume its because without them the direct fit of hose puts strain on the jets which pulls them ever so slightly down. Also the spray is much more of a mist now than without the elbows fitted

    Also do you have your shim positioned as below? (by the way this is not a picture of my car!)

    Thanks for the advice. I have the 90 degree elbows fitted but I'll need to check how I've got the shims fitted this afternoon.

    Thanks to all who have posted on this thread.

    Got my VW fan versions today and fitted them in 10 minutes flat. It was the fact that Audi now sell the shims that swung it for me. Certainly improved my B7 Avant.

    Now all I'm waiting for is the brushed silver gear surround and a new gear knob. Should do me on the mod front for a while....
