147 washer jets

Washer jets on the 147 were a bit naff, so wanted to replace them,

Does anyone know if Alfa do most jets for the facelift 147/159 brera etc that would fit?

I've tried retrofitting the Peugeot ones that you can get from eBay but they don't fit!

Thanks in advance

i'd like to know this as well.

i once had an FTO, and a popular "upgrade" was mist jets from a volvo.
i'll dig out a volvo jet and see if it fits.

You may find it is already there on your 147.
Remember heated jets were an option on the 147/GT.

fitted Fiat Stilo ones to mine - 3 holes and heated and wiring was under the bonnet.

Bit naff when standing still but fantastic on the motorway for me.

Anyone tried these, need new blades and have issues with jets so thinking this might be worth a punt?

flat blades with washers

However unlike the 147 jets the angle isn't adjustable

I can't confirm if the fitting of the 147 & 147 F/L is the same ( I'm sure someone else will be able to ) but there are only 2 jets compared to 3 on the old ones so you'll probably noticed an improvement in jet strength

bought the Mito jets today they were exactly what i was looking for, exact fit and a better coverage of the whole screen. They produce a mist over the screen rather than a jet towards it.

not cheap though £26 for two! that was with discount! part number incase anyone is looking for them is 0156084510, these are not heated, i didn't have the wiring from what i could see.

Thanks for the advices!

i rplaced the standard one in my wife's 147 and my GT with stilo heated ones that are 3 hole outlets .

on my wife's 147 (56 plate lusso ) wiring was there and in my GT ( blackline 07 plate ).

do a search on my name and you will find photos and part numbers.

What's the trick to getting the old jets off? Someone said to just pry them off, but they take more force than I'm happy exerting without likely taking the paintwork work it. What're odds of the bonnet panel underneath breaking the clips when I try taking it off to get at them from underneath?

The 156 never got heated washer jets.
I don't thing anyone has ever mentioned an alternative heated jet that fits straight in either (otherwise I would have got them by now...!).

Turns out removing the jets is a piece of cake from underneath, carefully pop a couple of the plastic bungs holding the heat shield under the bonnet, push in the plastic retainer on the side of the jet, and with a bit of wiggling it popped up.

Looks like part of the problem with mine was a tiny bit of stuff stuck in the valve portion of the Y-splitter, took it apart, cleaned it out, filled it with water, sucked some water into the hose from the pump, plugged it all back in, hit the lever and off it went.

I'd ordered a new set of jets anyway (they were pretty cheap) so I'll probably replace them anyway, just so they're blacker than the existing ones - good to know it's a relatively painless job.

Now to find a replacement for the cap that's missing from the water reservoir.
