    Thumbs Down Insignia Washer Jets

    I know the washer jets are meant to be fixed on quite tight but have spent a while hitting it with the screwdriver and it won't come out. Tried moving the clip and easing it out but still no luck. I worry that if I keep hitting it with the force that Im using the cover is going to break!

    Whats the best way of getting them out?

    As above, plenty of wd40, leave for about half hour and it should be a lot easier to get out

    I decided in the end that since my MOT is coming up I'll ask them to do it and see how they get on

    I got them off ebay quite cheapish, it is cheaper from VX so I hear but its more convenient using ebay
