How to adjust??
Does anyone know how to adjust the direction of
the windscreen washers. I want to lift mine as they seem to be aimed at
the very bottom of the windscreen and just hit the base of the wiper
blades with very little fluid reaching the windscreen. Tried a pin and a small screw driver but the jets seem reluctant to move ????

Mine also hit the bottom of the windscreen but actually clean just fine. It also means i don't waste fluid washing the roof or the motorcyclist behind which is not very nice for the biker.

Mine also need adjusting. When driving my new Mokka home from collection I actually thought my washer bottle was empty as it appeared that nothing was coming out of the skooshers, so stopped off and bought a bottle of water to top it up. Lo and behold the washer bottle was full. The spray hardly reaches the bottom of my screen when travelling at speed, bit better when going at lower speed.

For those who want to make their own tool (and to save Blum finding his blue tack) here is a drawing and picture of the BO-49380.

Just looking at the business end and without Blutack, I want a bit of 6mm tube with 1mm sidewall, a junior hacksaw and a fine file.
On with the pith helmet, I'm on a mission!
As Captain Oates said, "I'm going outside I may be sometime".

Took mine back to dealer today, as like others have already posted the washer jet hits lower wiper. The mechanic told me that on the mokka there is no adjustment and the spray is designed to hit the wiper arm and spray. Mentioned that the forum suggests that a special tool is required to which he replied that if there was one they haven't got one.
Does anyone know for definite whether he is correct in that here is no adjustment or is he wrong.

By George I've got it.

Of course he is correct, with my tool, it was the car that moved and the jets stayed in the same place!
