    How do you do this, I have got the hose off fine, just wondering how to get
    the old jet off before I can replace it. Do I unscrew it somehow or pull it
    with pliers or something else?

    they are just pressed in, but there are plastic clips on the jet which makes
    it difficult to pop out since they open up underneath the bonnet, pop them
    out from underneath using a screwdriver by pushing the plastic clips
    most washer jets are like this, however a little more info on your car etc
    might be better.
    why do you need to change them anyway, they are probably just blocked up,
    use a firm fine wire in the nozzle to clean them...or better still, use
    screen wash in future, most jets block up (corrode) because people dont use
    screen wash...just water...............

    Hi Steve

    Sorry I couldnt have been much vaguer if I'd tried.

    Its a 205, 13 years old but only done 21k.

    Left washer is fine, right is very poor, I had a poke abit in it with a
    needle awhile ago but was in shop today and just bought one for a few quid.

    I always use screen wash and when I got the car there was screenwash but I
    do take your point.

    I might have a go with some wire too before I pop it out.

    Thanks alot :)

    On my 406, after having to clean the jets repeatedly, I inserted an
    on-line mesh filter (from a motor bike shop). No problems since
    (except I have to clean the filter now and again).

    well it sounds much easier than having to try and unblock small jets with
