    Removing Washer Jets.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to get the old washer jets out?

    I gave them more than a couple good solid taps with a hammer but they will not budge at all.

    Thanks.

    as above - we held the jets from below and gave a short sharp tap with a hammer

    i tried small taps but that was no good - one definite tap and out it came

    so much easier on the mk4 - they just flop out!

    on the back of the them underneath the panel there is a small holding clip that needs to be pushed back before hammering them out.

    I ended up taking the whole panel off and looking at it from the bottom as my hands were too big to get in the gap easily lol
