The jets are plastic nozzles that are located right at or near the middle of your hood. These nozzles must spray the windshield washing solution at varying levels of your driving speed. So proper alignment of these nozzles is absolutely critical for the system to work.
A properly aligned windshield washer jet allows you to quickly remove mud and other impediments that would normally get stuck on your windshield. Some of the symptoms that may make you think that the jets are misaligned may actually be due to dirt, ice and other objects that may clog up the nozzle. Also if you use water in the windshield washer reservoir in a temperature that is below freezing, your entire windshield washer system may not operate properly and that will include your jets.
If the nozzles on your jets appear to be spraying in the wrong direction, or not spraying at all, the jets may need to be adjusted. However this can also be due to the deterioration of the washer tubes or even a windshield washer reservoir that needs replacement. If your washer jets won’t adequately clean your windshield glass, have one of our top-rated mechanics inspect the entire cleaning system. This way you can have the source of the system quickly identified and repaired. For most cars, the cost of replacing your washer tubes, jets, and other related parts is very reasonable. So keep that in mind.
Vision is one thing you should not compromise on when it comes to your daily driving. In the case of windshield washer jets, you’re adjusting a part that isn’t costly and can make a world of difference when it comes to safety. If you find that the washer jets are not spraying your fluid where it needs to go, then invest in a proper inspection.
