Hello everyone,
I'm enjoying my new (secondhand) C3, it's been great today.
I've been tinkering around with it again as usual :mrgreen: & noticed the passenger side washer jet doesn't
work like the driver's which sprays a nice fan shaped arc of water. The passenger one seems to have a mind
of it's own - it shoots a more solid kind of jet in one direction one minute & then changes direction the next!
Have done the usual things with a sewing needle & removed the supply pipes & blown them through but it has not
improved it. So, I'm thinking I should replace the jet & buy a new one - does anyone know: ...are they main dealer only? Are they all the same, interchangeable and/or model specific? Thank you, Tania.

Aaah sorry, I think I just found them on fleebay....oops!

Hi Tina,

Yes, as you found out they are available on ebay, here. The newer version have a silicone seal, have a look at https://citroenc3owners.com/questions-about-a-petrol-powered-citroen-c3-f10/le ... -t584.html to see that the seal stops water dripping onto injectors....
