Incredibly easy it will be!
Very easy to fit, took about 20 minutes but I also changed my blades... which took longer!
I can report back some leaking as someone else pointed out. See picture. Not sure how normal this is as I can say I've never used my washer whilst stationary and observed so intently.
There seemed to be a fair amount of liquid pooled on the ground, and whilst lifting the bonnet post application and spray, there was still a fair bit of liquid dripping from the driver side sprayer.
My guess is the liquid doesn't exit the fan washer as quickly as the jet, so when I disengage, the liquid which hasn't been jettisoned just sits in the pipe and leaks out. Therefore in reality I'm probably not saving any wash as a result of the swap; but the clean is certainly better and that is good enough for me.
I fell into this trap. The ebay ones weren’t ejected from the mould properly so wouldn’t fit. Paid way more for genuine ones but the difference in quality is massive! Worthy investment. Bloody sick of those stupid pistol jets.
Hi Guys, looked in just to see what's happening here. Glad to have helped, about 124,000 views!
Still running the fans and no problems
Hi all, how do i know if i have heated washer jets or not? I want to install these fan type jets, i think i prefer them.
Do you have headlight washers? If so you may have heated washers. To check in lip one of the existing washers and if there is an electrical cable connected to it as well as a water pipe then they are heated. If you only have the water pipe then they are unheated.
These are the heated ones I bought for my CUPRA. Part number is shown.

Exactly what I had with geniune ones, the water runs out and wets the top rubber seals on the scuttle. They don't have a one way valve or something different, found the cheap ones better! But one of my cheaper ones gets blocked easy, so who knows!
Hi guys, I’m new to the forum and despite numerous efforts to purchase the fan jets, every time they’ve arrived they’re just normal jets instead of a fan spray. Has anyone recently purchased any who could send me a link to what they bought? All the previous ones aren’t on eBay anymore and I don’t want the hassle of buying more which are wrong.
I bought direct from Listers (forum sponsor). Genuine parts and roughly the same price as eBay. If you give them a call, they are very helpful.
these are the ones I bought. All the cheap eBay ones were rubbish.
Thank you both so much! I’ll go and have a look now. Hopefully it’ll all be sorted now!
I bought a set from a vendor - £28 - said it was genuine, but they were not. no packaging and the adjusters was a flathead screw type, not the allen key type. Aliexpress knockoffs for OEM prices. Be careful. Awaiting a set from a link above from Greece now which was only a little more expensive.
I don't understand why some people are paying so much for the un-heated fan jets. My local Seat dealer charged me less than £16 incl VAT for a pair of the genuine fan jets.
Maybe I just got lucky but mine are not genuine ones and have the flathead screw adjustment, but I haven't had any issues and they've been on the car nearly two years. Would have preferred genuine but these are working as normal, better than the jets which is the main thing!
This is down to dummies thinking "ebay is always cheapest" - I've thought that way once, as usual the plan should be "always check the price at your local main dealer first" - obviously if you can't make the time to visit a main dealer, buying at inflated prices on line works, but try to find a main dealer's parts department selling on ebay, doing that should give you a slight discount over the usual main dealer price, but P&P will always increase the "through your letter box" price.
It's just convenience that people prefer these days, people used to do things themselves now the majority of people pay other people to do it for them.
In Greece from VW the part cost 11 Euro a piece, so 22 Euro for both without any shipping cost and pick them up 3 days later. 22 Euro with a peace of mind that it fits and perform like it should. Same for the air conditioning vent to the glovebox mod so 44 Euro in total with one trip to the dealer for 2 easy mods.
As a heads up I have just completed this mod and it appears the adjustment has changed from 2mm allen to T10 torx.
This is for part 5M0-955-985-C-9B9 - bought from Listers (our forum sponsor) this week.
As others have said before me, very easy mod - took 5 mins including fine tuning the spray height. Happy with the results.
