    an observation

    has anyone with a MK4 hatch ever managed to get the rear screen wash jet to spray diretly onto the window??

    i just can't seem to get my to do it no matter now little a adjustments i make.

    it ever hits the rear wiper or hit the roof and trickles down the rear screen just want to know if it is possible to get it spray onto the window?

    if so i'll keep fiddling if not i'll leave it trickkle down the window as it is now

    or i could adjust it so that it sprays onto the car behind

    Think this is probably all about physics........ If you'rwe moving forwards then you need it to point lower than you think cos it'll move along in the motion.

    Well, I know what I mean. Can't really describe it though!

    Basically I think it's pretty difficult

    i have to wash my windows every day after work as there is about 3mm of dust added to my car each day (and i'm not exaggerating) coz the company accross the road make a lot of dust. you can see clouds of the stuff coming accross the road and settling on the cars.

    so it is a bit annying that it don't work properly
