Angry washer nozzle issues

I seem to have a continuing problem with my 2004 turbo touring pt. The windshield washer nozzles are broken again! these are the 2nd pair that have broken. They always break in the same place, inside the rubber sleeve. Sounds like the stock parts Are cheap. Are there any after market metal ones out there?

YesSome of the LED ones have metal "ells" - ou don't have to hook up the lights - but if you do, stick to yellow (amber) or white - other colors may get you a ticket.

Thanks, but don't really need the led ones. Even if they make chrome ones,which hopefully would have ends that wouldn,t break i could paint them black like the original ones.

I don't need LED ones either - one of mine completely disintegrated - the plastic turned to powder. This was on my '08, so I've temporarily 'borrowed' one of my '01 (different part and spray pattern, but functions ok!). Easiest way to obtain a new one (or pair)?

i tried to find some metal ones but i couldn't. i looked into the led ones but they all look plastic. I know you said you don't want led ones but i wanted to look to at them to see if some of them were metal. best bet is to go to the local junk yard and pull as many from old PT's as you can.
