    I found two heated ones on eBay for £23 second hand, just been out to fit them and mine aren't heated! I assumed that heated seats were a part of the winter pack so washers would be heated too. If anyone is looking for a set of heated I'm happy to let these go and get some non heated ones. I've fitted them anyway for the time being. Should've checked first, it's literally a 90 second job to change both, it took me longer to put my shoes on.

    Been following this thread closely and today on my 1 day old to me, the right hand side jets have blocked up. Well 2 of the 3 squirty things.. So I too have ordered a pair. I chose to order genuine Seat/VAG ones as from past experience, I have had plastic clips and brackets break/snap way too easy... My choice....

    Should arrive early next week. Can't wait to get them installed...

    Hey all, does anyone no if the Leon FR 'tech' 65 plate, comes with heated or non heated jet washers, as standard?

    I have just bought my 2nd hand Leon, and not sure how to find out. Feel free to ask for more info if needed.

    I know my car has the Tech pack,

    Thanks for any help,
    Bhavik

    If the washers are heated you'll have an electric cable plugged into the washer unit - open the bonnet and have a look at the underside of the unit where the hose goes into it and your answer should be there.
    Enjoy your new motor mate, they're a great car.

    If you have headlamp washers you will definitely have heated screen washers but I don't think you would have them otherwise.

    Mine arrived today and I had to immediately install them. Took me 15 mins to do, without tools..
    Just 1) pull back and 2) down....

    12 mins of those were taking some pics... Not any different from the OP, just close up showing part number,

    VW logo,

    and that mine has a T10 adjustment screw......

    [​IMG]

    Anyone who is in doubt in doing this, don't waste any more time. A massive improvement spraying water all over the screen.... I have set mine on highest level and this covers the entire windscreen.

    Many thanks to the OP for the info. Such a simple but effective mod.

    Ah that's great!!
    Thanks for the update.
    May I ask where you ordered your from?

    Also what do you mean by 'setting on the highest level' am I able to adjust the amount of spray, as I would like to increase the coverage as well.
    Please could you guide on this, thanks.

    I bought them from a VW dealer on eBay.....
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/172800938875

    As for highest setting I mean I have adjusted the adjustment T10 torx screw so the jet points all the way up... While car is stationary the jets cover the windscreen almost completely, but be aware the faster you drive the lower the airflow over the car will force the jets back down...

    Sorry pic won't show up until the I've done 15 days...

    Just bought a pair of non-heated fan washers off eBay for 12 quid.

    141440478977 is the listing number if anyone is looking.

    Hi,

    Just had a look at the eBay listing, but it's £12.19 for one. Is that the correct listing?

    Ive got a set of genuine VW heated fan washer jets for sale if anyone is interested. Took them off my Leon before I traded it in last week.

    Never thought about doing this, but the originals are soo poor I think I will get it done.

    Just need to check mine are heated or not. I am sure they are seeing as I have the winter pack, but will double check.

    If you've got the winter pack they'll be heated.

    There's a cable that goes into the side of the washer.

    Just checked and yup, I have wiring so they are heated

    Are these any good from China? Are they still working nicely a couple of months on?
