    Default Wiper Blades

    Folks,

    i've just fitted some Halfords flat blades and now the washer jets appear to be out of sync with the wipers, i.e. the jets are striking the baldes and wiper arms rather than the windscreen? its not a huge problem as the washer fluid does eventually hit the windscreen??

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Re aim the jets so they are a little higher than the wiper blades.

    Cheers ed, i take it they are adjusted using a flat blade screw driver or simmilar? I was reading about the insignia washer jet mod and how you needed either the special tool from VX or the modified biro lid, not sure if this is the case with the vectra ones too? As you can probably tell from the daft posts, I just got my new vectra on Saturday and still trying to get my head around it! Thanks again!

    If you have thje insignia ones . Then you WILL need a special tool. I don,t recomend tyring to adjust them with a screwdriver . You will ruin them.

    No you should be ok then. Get a small pin that will fit into the jet hole. With a bit of fiddling about you should be able to set the jets where you want them.
