    Good evening,

    Has anyone here had a lack lustre water jet recently? My drivers side screen wash now projects about 1/3 of the way up the screen in one stream instead of the two jets on the passenger side.

    Is this likely to be a problem with the water supply or a blockage in the jet itself?

    Many thanks in advance,

    Moniker

    May bedown to calcium sentiments caused by using normal tap water?

    Strong possibility-even the water from my Britta filter was pretty hard where I was living last year.

    Are the jets easily disassembled to give it a good clean?

    Yeah you can just immerse them in a weak vinegar solution overnight or replace them with new ones.

    This reminds me I need to re-align my nearside jet so it sprays the part of the screen the wipers cover rather than mostly the roof, passers by etc. :Sorry:
