There's no way those clips fit together ,and even if they did that means there's only enough clips for one side even though the kit has 2 spray bars

Have u got a pic thanks Mark

Thanks Danny the ones on the pack are different to that .You wouldn't mind bit I only bought them for 2 clips .

The ones in your pic are the same as the ones I have on driver side p side is cabled tied on
These clips are for holding the pipe/hose to the wiper arm. Have a look on the sides of the wiper arm and all should be revealed.

Hi

I had the same issue as you last year. I think I got mine from EB Spares. We worked out between us that half the clips appeared to come with the spray bar, the other clips come with the wiper blade. So, I ended up having to buy the blades and the spray bar to get it to work.

Might be worth checking the blades out though before you buy to see if that's still the case, but that was the long and short of it for me.

Sorry didn't view your picture correctly, was a bit early in the morning when replied. In your picture you have 1 of each clip shown for each wiper arm. Please see picture for explanation.

I sent these back in the end .Sick of buying stuff that's not what it seems .Anway will go the Wipex route

I notice that Wipex do on the arm jets .Looks like a fit and forget solution ,also leaves u free to fit any blades you want.

Anybody fitted these ? And has a pick of them fitted

Must admit they ain't cheap though £17 for a pair of washer jets ! The originals are cheaper

Thanks Mark

I bought and fitted a pair of those and rapidly went off them, they didn't last long and the blade looked a little skinny without the spray blade.

I have just bought new oem wiper blades and the oem spray bars.

The wiper blades come with the spray bar clips (two per wiper)

The spray bars come with the clips for the wiper arms (one of each per arm) for the rubber water pipes.
