Replacement windscreen washer jets ?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found a suitable replacement for the original washer jets for the 2002-2004 S-Type ?

I have one that seems to stop working for no reason, the replacement Jaguar ones are about £20 each !

Someone must manufacture them for Jaguar, wondered if there was a cheaper alternative supplier ?

Hi Jon, 

They are a touch expensive. I wonder if Breaker Yard could source them for you.

Another alternative is to fit [if possible] the post facelift system.

Regards,

Peter.

If there the bonnet mounted ones then they're the same as the ones fitted to the Mgf/tf and a popular mod is to fit those from a Renault megane.

Thanks for the replies.

The Ford ones don't look like they will fit as they don't appear to have the inbuilt 'spring clip' fitting that the originals have ?

Purchased a set of the Bosch aero wipers this afternoon which have washer nozzles on the wiper itself.

I have fitted the wipers but not had chance to look at what I will need to do to re-route the pipework.

As an aside, I tried a bizarre suggestion to soak the troublesome jet in coca-cola (Pepsi in my case !)

After taking the 'Pepsi challenge', I blasted water through from a spray bottle and got a load of 'gunge' out of the nozzle.

Now refitted and working fine so far !56fc38b084449_Newcamerapics009.thumb.JPG

Thanks for the info.

I really just want an alternative source for the original ones if possible.
