Just wondering about my rear screen washer jets.

When I use them, there is a lot of fluid pumped out but it rarely go more than 3-4 inches and relies on the blade to move it over the rear window.

I would have expected the jets to squirt the fluid further. Is my experience normal or do I need to get the jets adjusted?

Just checked mine too,they are the same as yours but they do what there supposed to.

I think they're brilliant! Rather than spraying randomly on the rear window it squirts from the wiper in front of where it wipes.

Shunter, no need to pay to get them adjusted - if you get a sewing needle and stick it in the nozzle outlets, you can generally move them about yourself - just be careful not to snap the needle off in the jet. You have to adjust,then test, adjust, then test, etc etc...usually I end up with them spraying the pavement and none of the rear window, first attempt !
