Morning all,

Does anyone know how the early Aero washer jets are removed?
I presume either a hidden fixing under the body or dash (looks pretty inaccessible) or maybe they twist off?

Thanks cheers

i've had a quick look at a photo and it seems they're the small metal ones. They have a threaded portion at the base, and a nut that tightens them up.

Thanks TBM - are they the same on the Aero? I could have swarn mine look slightly different - I shall have to go to the garage to investigate!

Assuming they mount the same, how do you get to the underneath? I see no clear access path..

That's another question! On mine, you just stick your hand under the dashboard and have a feel around for the tube, then follow that to the back of the jet.....

To be honest, most jets are either a nut fitting or a couple of plastic clips you have to squeeze together to release.

- they are the same (or similar) to the ones TBM references.

You have to take the black plastic dash surround off to access them from inside the cabin.The surround is held on with several small self tappers.

Access is not easy unless you can train a small child to manipulate the spanners (I think yours is too young yet Nick...... innocent)

Try small sockets on a screwdriver type square head handle instead of a spanner. There are plenty of cheap socket sets that have these.

To put the nut in place again I used (in the socket) a small piece of foam with a hole.
