    you can buy a special 'tool' on ebay or vx dealers for adjusting them or you can cut the lid of a biro pen into an 'X' which will do the same job

    Fitting is a straight swap as already said. The best tip is to pour hot water on the hose at the joint point - this will soften the hose which will easily come off then.
    Once fitted, I found mine to be fine for line, it was only height that needed adjusting. Again, the hot water helps and then I CAREFULLY used a pair of long nosed pliers to ease the jet up slightly.
    And then when you're all finished count on refilling the washer fluid rather more frequently for the first couple of weeks as you'll be playing a lot due to way better coverage than the old V jets.

    I'll second the hot water idea, mine were a ***** til i did this! And they do a much better job of "scooshing" than the standard ones!
