    There's a different washer bottle that is much larger, it also has a second pump hole for the headlight washers. You could try and wire it in there so no need to make your own hole.

    Any motor with the headlight washers - GSi's, VXR's and some SRI's with Xenon/AFL headlights.

    Quick question. the heated washer jet socket next to the pollen filter, does it just have 2 pins for the live and earth?

    Can anyone see any issues with me powering the heater from there so i can use the rear window de-mist switch. Would the fuses need uprating etc.

    Might get the heated jets while at it......

    Yeah its just a live and earth.

    Not sure what the wiring is rated at but the heater probably draws a fair amount of power.

    Would be better of using the switched power to trigger a relay for it wired from the battery.

    Did you ever actually fit this and get it working - got another cold snap on the way and this might just help. . .

    If its too hot it will crack the screen, can it be set at a low temp? Also if the water freezes would it still be safe to use? U might need to do a few checks using your home freezer
