Default Can you upgrade the windshield washer nozzles?

I'm curious if you can upgrade the OEM windshield washer nozzles.

Well, let me clarify...I know you can get the chrome ones and the LED ones, but what I'm talking about is upgrading the type/quality of the jets.

I HATE the two stream kinda nozzles we have now. No, I don't have any obstructions or anything in them, I'd just much rather have a fan-type spray or wider mist from the nozzles instead of the streams.

Does anyone have any insight or suggestions?

Thanks!

Interesting - I posted the same question on another PT forum some months ago. I completely agree. My son has a 99 Dodge Stratus and the washer nozzles on it are great, creating perfect coverage in a fan spray. I asked some mechanics about it and they basically said to just try it and see. The nozzles look almost identical.

I haven't had the courage or time to try it. I'm very interested to know if someone else succeeds because I, too, think the stock washers are pathetic.

There are aftermarket nozzles that I have seen for other cars, mostly euros if I remember corredtly, that are adjustable sprayers. Not sure how they would adapt. I would just start googling.

I relocated my washers, but before I did I needed to find some washers that were very adjustable. These are Mycarr washer nozles. (available from www.midnightmoose.com) They do have the LEDs in them, but the sprayers are very wide dispersion and the nozzles are adjustable up-down-left or right. An adjustment tool is in the package. I must warn you though. These will dribble on the hood every bit as much as the stock nozzles do. Thats why I relocated them on the cowl under the hood.

I agree with this post .... they are the worst... question for gear head what did you use to fill the space from the original postion? can you just chance the washers without moving them?
thanx

You can leave the original washer nozzles on the hood. I wanted the blue LEDs so I bought 2 sets of mycarr washers. Mounted 1 set on the hood & wired up the LEDs. I removed the LEDs from the second set and mounted them under the hood on the cowl assy.

Any nozle should fit. They are not threaded in they just clip from the back, and the hose just pushes on. The hardest part of switching them is moving ( or removing ) the hood liner.

Thanks gang; I apologize for not replying sooner - I was out of town for the weekend. I appreciate all the info. I didn't realize that the nozzles could be universal. I'll check some out and post my findings.

Have a great one! [^]
