They clip into the long edge of the hole for the washer. I put mine on closest to the windscreen side (rightly or wrongly). Make sure they are clipped/slid on securely. One of mine wasn't and when I pushed the washer jet in it pinged the shim into the bonnet cavity. What a PITA to get that out :-(
Top tip adjust washer height before putting onto the car...easier
Push the shims into the bonnet
So the shims slide into the the bonnet. I have mine furthest away from the windscreen...wrong right
(Phil....hows your aim on your spray? Too high too low?)
Nah no point realy
I take it yours just hits above the wipers too?
I would think further back the higher it would be?...not taking the force of gravity into consideration here due to how close the nozzle is to the screen and the preasure it comes out at.
So purely baising this theory on..
The closer the nozzle is to the edge of the bonnet = the closer and more chance it has to hit the wiper blades.
Same principle as...you have a bigger field of view the further you are away from something.
(The old trick with the 2p and the sun???)
Ive had my weaterbix this morning so i have my science head on lmao
...so if anything i may need to adjust mine ahaha
I SHALL ADJUST ONE AND TAKE MEASUREMENTS BEFORE AND AFTER!
At the time I was too annoyed by:
1. the shim disappearing into the bonnet hole
2. the water tube connector snapping off the old washer jet when removing, causing stress with having to quickly order one from the local VW parts dept and then struggling with boiling water on the hose to try and give some ability to insert the new plastic connector into the far too rigid rubber.
Overall: stress vs. new spray pattern = probably not worth the grey hairs
