    insignia washer jets help

    Tried to fit my insignia jets today, but for the love of god, I can't get the bloody old ones off. I have taken the ruber seal off to allow the scutlle pannel to lift a bit, then I tried locating the little metal clip that holds the jets in place, but didnt find them. Then Ive tried tapping them on top with a blunt object as other ppl on here mentioned, but still no luck, and I dont want to hit it harder to break something.
    Any ideea please, or a photo of the back of the scuttle pannle so i can see where the bloody clips are?

    Thanks

    If I remember there are 2 hooks that hold it in place, I got 2 small flat screw drivers, stuck one each side and tapped the old washer with a hammer, I smacked a stubborn one quite hard as it wouldn't budge but did then lol

    just did mine earlier and as with the mk4 the mk5s were a right sod

    i just gave it a good hard whack with the end of a torch lol and they popped right out

    dont worry about breaking it, unless your really smashing it to hell it shud be fine
