A wee little while ago I posted a thread about the little nozzle things on the front of the car. The wotsits what wash the headlights.

Now a very kind soul sent me two little nozzles in the post. A very nice man. However now one of my dipped beam nozzles has disappeared, I think due to the newly inserted main beam ones increaing the pressure in the pipes.

Therefore, if any kind soul has a spare dipped beam headlight washer nozzle, I'd be happy to give it a new home where it will be cared for and gently stroked.

Cheers all.

Please help, imagine me on bended knee, If anybody has got a dead 155 with headlight squishers on, or knows of a breaker who has one, please let me know. The gush of water mixed with screen wash is leaving a scummy streak down the bumper. I is not a happy chappy.

Help

I too have recently lost the final part to the assembly of the washers for the headlights- the small round 'plug' where the water comes out from. It was split for a few months and I just pushed it back home now and again, but eventually it dropped out as it was split and therefore not a tight fit...am I making any sense?? are these tiny parts available alone from a dealer?? I'd love to get hold of one so that I can stop the streak effect on the bonnet!

regards
Raj :rolleyes:

I am only after the tiny little nozzles. They push fit into items 1 and 10. Literally tiny. If nobody has a set, or a contact that can get them, I shall simply pull the plug on the pump.

The little nozzle inserts pop out of the nozzle tips quite easily. The last pair I got, I glued in with Bostick, which is working a treat.

Don't think I could justify £25 for one and £45 for the other for a part worth about 10p :)

Ho hum

I had a thought. Do any other headlight washer jet nozzles fit a 155? Lots of volvos have washer squirters, some fords.

Any ideas?

It's probably worth a try having a wander around a scrap yard.
Also have a look at accessory shops, they have windscreen jets so may have something suitable

Haven't managed to get to the scappy yet, but have devised a cunning plan.

Will place a blob of Fibreglass resin in the hole and allow it to dry, then drill a very thin hole through it. Will try this nect weekend or go to scrappy, will keep bods informed.
