Heated Washer Nozzles


 Share

Recommended Posts

Does any IS come with heated washer nozzles that can be retro fitted? I'm sick of my nozzles freezing, even when using sh*tloads of de-icer screenwash.

Any other solutions to this problem?

One idea is to lengthen the pipe to the nozzles and wrap it around the rad top hose, but that's a bit lo-tech for my liking ;)

well i dont know about heated nozzles as you would probably need to heat the delivery pipes as well, this is posible u get elements from maplin for this job. even if u did wrap it round the rad top hose i think u will still get the un-heated exposed section of piping freezing.

Are you using a cheap screen wash? as i dont see why you should have this prob, i had no probs in temps down to-17C, just used a good screen wash and a reduced amount of water, worked fine.

cheers

So they're not heated already? I wondered if they were or were just well designed 'cause I don't use much screen-wash in the water and mine have been fine. They haven't frozen up once even bombing down the M4 in minus temps.

I think if you've got a good wash mix there's no problem - mine haven't frozen at all, even at speed, during the recent cold spell.

Don't you use the heated front screen? Mine gets quite hot and keeps the wipers ice-free pretty well.
