Upgrading Washer Jet to Mist

Post by andreihoff » Sun Feb 05, 2017 6:23 pm

I wonder if anyone tried to replace the standard washer jets to the Insignia mist-type spray?

It worked on my old Astra Mk5 and I though for just over £4 for a pair it's worth a shot...

Next job is to remove Astra K jets and compare them.
BTW What are these from? I used Insignia sprays to replace my Corsa D jets.

Having changed from an insignia to an Astra I do miss the mist jets. I think there cant be much of a cost difference for the OEM between the two types so don't know why they just don't fit them as standard.

Let us know how you get on.

Ok so if anyone is still interested in this - you can get mist washer jets from chevrolet cruze - part number GM 84011259. They are drop in replacement, take about minute to change and work perfectly - cover the entire windshield with mist. The only downside is you have to order them from usa, seems like its chevrolet part not sold in europe, but they can be found on ebay without much problems.

It looks like this -
