Default How do I remove washer jets

Hi,
My washer jets on my 407 coupe are completely blocked, I have tried a pin and have tried blowing down the tube but no joy so I think I need to remove them but as they are between the skins of my bonnet I can't figure out how to get them off

Any ideas or pictures anybody?

I vaguely remember removing them on one of my 407s, I still have the scars.
Mental and physical.

I think you have to nip the bottom of them before they'll come out, and yes it's squeeze.

You need a pair of long nose pliers to release the clips on the jets.But as you know,its double skinned,and you are pretty much working blind.And when i removed my jets,the clips broke off anyway.I had already ordered 2 new genuine jets off ebay.Around £10 for the pair i think.Also,some of the pipe work to mine broke too,it had gone brittle.And the car is only 8 years old.Halfords or any good car shop does the pipe and fittings cheaply.
You cant unblock the jets with a needle or pin,as they are fan spay(on mine anyway).

Mine came from the dealership with clogged nozzles, which was nice of them. Although, they were 2 hours away so driving back wasn't an option.

I found by putting the nozzles on to a can of deodorant without the the sprayer top (not ap as that can be powdery) and spraying some through it, it unclogged them.
Took me about 2 hours to find one that fitted mind, but I'm tight so I wasn't giving up and buying new ones

Well worth buying a few cans of compressed air , Handy for cleaning the PC internals and heatsinks on Processors ,Probably do that job , Do these suffer the same issue as the 307 SW with the washer water pumps , mine looked as though it was working ,but was to weak to spray

Undo the pad on the underside of the bonnet so that you can get in. Use pliers to squeeze the bottom of the nozzle and at the same time try try to push a plastic pry tool under the top of the nozzle to lever it out.

no need to undo the pad, I did and realized that is not covering the nozzles, so time wasted and tough effin job

Yeah its a clip so you just press and push or if you have someone help you that can pull from top will make it easier.
check the non return valve it gets clogged as well. (its a small round thingy with white cap located on the hose in the middle of bonnet) just pull it apart and check the diaphragm (i flipped it since it had grooves in it.) but be super careful when you open it there is a spring in it and you can end up losing it and the cap and diaphragm in the maze of engine and under tray


So "cleaned" it with compressor 2 times and it always gets clogged after a month, last time I i disconnected the hose on the nozzle made small hole on the cap of the washer reservoir and blow with compressor in it (very gently) until all of the washing fluid was out together with the dirt. And no issues for more than half of the year
