About Screen Washer Jets

A screenwasher jet is the mechanism by which screenwash is squirted onto the vehicle windscreen to aid clear visibility and safe driving. Screenwash is pumped from the screenwash reservoir by means of a stick-lever on the steering column. It’s carried by plastic tubing from the reservoir to two small jets which lie just below the exterior of the windscreen. On the rear windscreen there may be only one jet. These jets can be angled to get the optimum direction onto the windscreen. The use of windscreen wipers during operation of the jets will obtain the best results in thoroughly cleaning the windscreen.

 

There will usually be a setting on the steering column lever that will cause the windscreen wipers to activate automatically with a spray of screenwash from the jets.

 

Poor jet spray is likely to be caused by the jet nozzles becoming blocked by debris in which case the screenwash is not able to escape from the jets. If the jets are inoperative the wipers will generally smear the windscreen making visibility poor. If the screenwasher jets are not angled correctly they will not spray the screenwash onto the correct portion of the windscreen. In extreme cold weather the screenwasher jets may freeze up and not allow water to be sprayed onto the windscreen. It’s also possible for the plastic tubes which carry the screenwash to perish and leak which will prevent fluid reaching the jets. Pools of water under or even inside the vehicle may be apparent if this is the case.

Jaguar trivia

  • Jaguar isn't a big name in F1, but they did have a go. They raced between 2000 and 2004 but didn't perform well enough to justify the costs. They managed a less than stellar ninth place in their final race.
  • The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
  • Talk about testing your car! Jaguars are put through a very rigorous climate test, where they are first tested in -40 degrees for twelve hours. Once that's done, the cars are then sprayed with water while standing in a 0-degree wind tunnel. That's why they cope so well with British weather.
  • Jaguar was bought out by Ford in 1990, but they didn't really capitalise on the investment. Eventually, Ford sold Jaguar to the current owners, the Indian company Tata Motors.
  • The 2014 Superbowl advert for Jaguar featured Brit actors Ben Kingsley and Mark Strong, with a terrified Tom Hiddlestone hanging out of a helicopter as it flew across London. Not many people know that the driver used for this advert was The Stig (Ben Collins).
