MGF window wash jet

Anone know where can I pick up a window wash jet for the passenger side of the front windscreen? It's the bit that sticks out the bonnet and squirts water on the screen. The plastic pipe feeding it has sheared and looks too difficult to repair. I looked on the owners club website but couldn't find it.

I think a lot of the .org have upgraded to these:
CitroŽn mist washer jets

Yep, change to the Peugeot/Citroen ones, they're excellent.

as said above... do a search on ebay for citroen washer jets. there doesnt appear to be any on there at the moment, but some should come up soon... fit them instead.. mcuh better coverage than mgf standard.

It is actually the right-angled plastic connector under the bonnet that has sheared, but looking at it, I should be able to do without it and just connect the new jet directly to it. I just phoned the citroen garage and they have them for £3 each. I'll nip past on my way home and collect them. Thanks for the advice!

Hi, you need to ditch the right angled connector anyway to fit the citroen washer jets.

I put the new jet on last night and it is much better than the original. It is aimed a little higher than the old one though. I imagine I might get a wet neck with the roof down!
