    Default heated washer jets

    just fitted them, but not wired in as i dont fancy taking fuse box out whilst its p'ing down

    as seen in the how 2 they are wired up to pin 50 which is for rear screen, but is there any other tips in wiring as i really want to make sure its 100%

    Thats rather you washer bottle that does that... as you probaly dont have enough "alcohol" in it..

    heres screen was is able to do minus 21 (but startes to get like slushice at minus 12-14)

    so no alcohol, every thing will freez up, not any heated washerjets can help on that.
