Headlight washers

Just picked up my Alfa and noticed that the headlight washers do not work even when the lights are on.

Fuse hasn't blown so I assume it is the timing switch or the pump.

Are the washer heads supposed to look like the attached image or do they have a metal inner like the windscreen washers:

Re: Headlight washers

Be thankful that they don't work!

I pulled the fuse out on mine, they use up your water at a silly rate and you get baked on screenwash on the lights and all over the bonnet. Plus they don't actually clean the lights!

Re: Headlight washers

your jets look fine. but as rockhopper said they just cane your water for little or no affect.
leave them not working.
the only use i found for mine was when some old codger reversed in to my car and snapped the nearside one off, i used it to squirt pedestrians as it fires out at an unbelievable rate. far better than any super soaker i have seen. of course i don't condone this. ;-)
