    Do a search for posts by 'Ffoeg' about this - he's the man who knows and has done the work on it.

    i'd imagine they'd swap over pretty easily - the fitment is the same iirc

    I doubt if they are a straight swap as you can't adjust the angle of the jets - so they are stuck at wherever the squirt

    you might be lucky, you might not

    My Punto has 3 jets from each nozzle and can adjust them.

    I was thinking about trying to fit a set of the Peugeot mist jets I put on my 306. But its getting the angle right to hit the screen it may need to have some sort of mount made that would alter it slightly.

    Is it easy to get the washer jets out thats on the car now, looks more complicated on the astra than the pug was?
