I'll give them a whirl, thanks!
Do the latest face lift Leon's still ship with pistol style washer jets?
Suspect it’s still variable but mine came with pistols and I had to buy fan ones.
I think I'll whip my fan washers out and reinstall the oem pistols before it goes back just in case the new motor comes with pistols.
Exactly what I did.
Can't believe the Cupra does not ship with fan jets ( but then neither does the latest Golf R )
Penny pinching comes to mind! Can it really be much cheaper to manufacture the older style. You'd think if they made them all fan style accross every VAG car it would be best all round.
Just in case you don't notice it, the pistol washers are handed.
Installation video here on an A3, I assume they're the same.
Cannot believe I did not notice this thread earlier
I was also unhappy about the screen washers on mg new car and could not put my finger on what it was in the Octavia that made it better.
I read it here yesterday in the morning and in the afternoon I found a local breaker with the heated version out of a VW Sharan
Paid 25€, but they are genuine VW part and no hassle of ordering from anywhere.
Will try to install tonight.
Installed mine today - as per this thread, it is as easy as it gets.
Since the car is washed, resisted the urge to try them out
...will report back when I do, but as per my previous post, I got mine used from a breaker.
Finally got round to fitting my cheap Chinese knock off fan jets after I had to clean the washer bottle out, what a job that was!
They seem better than the genuine ones I had issues with.
Love the way they are obviously a copy and they have used a dremel to try to hide the VW badge in the moulding!
... And they worked just fine - big improvement. Just need to fix the aim now, since both are pretty low.
I bought these on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00HAHDWHE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_LSAfBbGFAHC6Y
So easy to swap I can’t believe I haven’t done it sooner! The aim was so low I had to adjust them to their highest setting but was very easy.
Massive improvement on the pistol jets!
I bought these off ebay. They dont seem to fit particularly well and dont clip in tightly like the oem ones do.
Pretty cheap at the dealers and usually cheaper than the rip offs on ebay.
I got some from beadles off ebay instead. Lot better fit/adjuster screw.
Just wanted to add that since changing to fan washers my screenwash lasts so much longer!
Haven’t worked out exactly how much longer but instead of jets p*ssing screenwash everywhere, it’s spread so evenly by the fan nozzle it only needs a small amount each time.
Great mod. I just done this myself on my Leon , quick install and looks better !!! Thanks for posting
As well as this mod for anyone who has the headlamp washer system, have a look at making changes via OBDEleven to how the system works.
It can be set depending on how long you hold the washer stalk on or how many times you wash windscreen.
Washer bottle seems to last forever now both fan washers fitted and alterations made.

Mine are not heated , tested hem and seem to work fine ? Weather that’s required on heated version?
