Steve Henderson wrote: On Rover SD1 Series 2 cars the screen washer jets have a fan type spray pattern and I could never get a decent spray even with new jets and pump, so I tried different wash fluids and found VAG fan jet screen wash. It works great, not cheap, P/No G052164M2 for1.5 litre is available from VW, Audi, Seat and Skoda dealers.
This snippet spawned a debate that collected several forum clean windscreen tips together for the mutual benefit of SD1 Owners Worldwide.
Here they all are:
# Use VAG wash fluid P/N G052164M2 specially for fan spray jets. - SD1steve
# Blow crud from tired and dirty washer jets with compressed air. - ramon
# Use a spare SD1 washer nozzle fixed into the blanked hole on the N/S scuttle. Tee off extra feed tube for Twin Windscreen wash facilty. - Hooson
# Use 16" Wiper Blades on front screen to reduce blade friction by 11%. - ramon
# Wrap extension feed tube around top radiator hose for Hot-Wash. - SD1john
