    Default insignia washer issue

    Is there a way to adjust the flow? My passenger side washer seems to let more through than the drivers side. They're retrofit to a signum by the way.

    Does that just change the direction though? It's the flowrate i'm looking to change. P.S. I found the how2 for the pen on a different forum

    Mines has always done this... I just assumed it was one of those things.

    You can fit a none return vavle to the washers whcih may help this (comes standard on the insignia). I have them somewhere as I bought them when I got the jets...

    Time for some experimentation I think lol....

    I was thinking of putting a pipe in parallel of the first washer to see if it allowed the second washer a bit more pressure.

    good idea that mate only maybe it would be better to take the single feed and split it on a Y one simply to one jet and a seperate one to the second jet and blank the end of the pasanger jet so it doesnt escape direct flow to each then isnt it

    Yeah, well that was the only reason for the parallel. I'd need to blank the other end of the passenger side.... or buy another drivers side to replace it with?

    You could crimp the passenger side hose slightly with a jubilee to reduce it's internal diameter and in theory the water should prefer the lower pressure route to the drivers side.

    The fluid flows through the passenger side washer to get to the drivers side though

    I would.....

    T Piece into it prior to the passanger side then take a pipe to the drivers side, and see how that is, If that doesnt work, Leave it in place, and Crimp the passanger side, forcing the pressure to the drivers side.

    Also a none return valve could assist.

    hope the screen wash you got in is good :P

    Think ive got the pipe connectors here too if needed.
