Hi, Sorry if this is in the wrong section, wasnt completely sure

I have some mk3 mist washer jets on my mk1.5 and they've been perfect up till now where one has become blocked so shoots directly up into the air instead of on the window. Tried sticking a pin in but hasnt worked, as there's no visible nozzles whats the best thing to do?

Thanks :)

methinks your only option is to take it out and clean it ,while it is off the car , it sounds like the blockage is at the base somwhere

Take it off and try blowing through the jet to dislodge whatever it is. Or connect up an air compressor to a small pipe and use that to help unblock it.

i had a similar problem i used a sprayduster (small can of compressed air) and blasted it from the front while on the car and it worked a treat
