    Adjust front windscreen washers

    How do I adjust the front windscreen washers.

    I want to raise the spray higher to midway on screen.

    Thanks

    If you can't use a screwdriver you can use a thin wire in the nozzle and bend it up. That's providing the nozzle isn't blocked.

    Thanks,

    not blocked.

    I can see a small screw next to jet hole, does need loosening ?

    I have tried to lift jets with a pin, this did not move them !

    Don't know if Mk7 is the same but mine which are located under the rear seam of the bonnet, adjust using a small hex (Allen) key.

    They don't use slotted screws, what are you calling slotted screw Torx or Pozi drive?

    It's definitely a slotted head !!!

    Can send pics.


    Perhaps they sourced two from E-Bay for my car.

    Ok that's slotted for drivers side wiper adjustment screw which is unusual. I'm talking about washer jets as that's what this thread is about, can you post a picture of that?

    Sorry Looks like I used the wrong word. It's the washer jets that required adjustment.

    This screw did adjust the washer jets to the front window, both sides needed adjustment as they were hitting the bonnet.

    Should have been picked up on its PDI.
