MK4 Headlamp washer jet and cover
« on: 02 July 2010, 13:33 »
HI guys - Have got a MK4 GTI and it has headlamp washer jets fitted...I thought they didn't work but having read another thread the headlamps need to be on in order for them to work.......After finding out they worked last night the drivers side (Plunger jet bit!) pinged out of the bumper and disappeared taking the cover with it..........

Any ideas where the best place might be to get a replacement Jet and cover from?

PS - Have just had a look on ebay and there is one there and a bidding war....


Thanks muchly
Chris (Hennoir)

TPS mate. I had the same thing, I picked my car up in the dark so they worked and I went to prove a point to a mate and they didn't work so I worked out that the lights gad to be on, kinda makes sense really. Lol. However I havnt had to replace mine with new ones but I would go to tps for anything o/e.

OK cheers for the info....Will try TPS....

Just for info, I have called the local VW dealer just to see what they would charge and also to get the part numbers....

The Offside replacement Jet P/N is J0955104A (Price £9.55 & VAT)
The Offside replacement Cover is JO955110A007 (this is a primered part not painted, Price £10.99 & VAT)

Just to note that the one i found on ebay went for £26 which was a painted used one......

Will try TPS as recommended and see what they charge...

Cheers

OK have just called TPS (Trade Parts Specialists) and they are exactly the same price as VW.

Whilst on the blower I got the part numbers for the other side..

Just to note that Covers are primered and not painted

Nearside (passenger side):
Headlight washer Jet : 1JO955103A (Price from VW and TPS is £9.55 + VAT)
Headlight washer cover : 1JO955109A007 (Price from VW and TPS is £10.99 + VAT)

Offside (Drivers side):
Headlight washer jet : 1JO955104A (Price from VW and TPS is £9.55 + VAT)
Headlight washer Cover : 1JO955110A007 (Price from VW and TPS is £10.99 + VAT)

Hopefully this might help others on the hunt to replace the water proppelled mini rockets that are the headlight washers.
