I might be wrong in thinking this, but I think I saw a thread that said that the mister washer jets from Xsara's fit as a replacement. Am I right in thinking this? if I am does anybody know what the part number is?

Personally I am not a fan of these Citreon jet washers. The mist spray is good but they were never designed for the R45/ZS and so the washers do not sit 100% properly on the bonnet and every time the car get washed, I have to readjust the washers to sit properly again.

Then the mist spray is not that powerful at 70mph. I have reverted back to OE and readjust the nozzles and quite happy with the 4 jets of water.

+1 Mine never move and you use so much less screen wash as you only have to spray a tiny amount as it covers the whole screen. Great buy for any Zed!!

Is there a good tip for getting the OE ones out??

I bought some new ones about a year ago, had a go at pulling the old ones out and whimped out. Thought I'd bend the bonnet rather than get them out, so decided to leave the old one on.

They take a little bit of persuasion Peter but mine came out fairly easily. I doubt you'll bend the bonnet. Like I said, the screenwash lasts twice as long ;)

warm them with a hairdryer first peter, plastic goes brittle after a while, but warming it will make it soft and easier to pop out

We have them on 3 of our cars, I think they look and work better than O/E.

Peter - are you pushing from behind or pulling from above?
I found the easiest way to remove them was to squese them with some pliers from underneath.

Cheers for the help guys, will have another go.

Was pushing underneath, Talkingcars, but seemed to want a lot of effort, thats when I chickened out.

I'll get the wife's hairdryer out, plus the pliers and have a good squese and harder push.

:wave:
