I just installed these washer nozzles on my '05 PT Cruiser GT (with turbo). I wish to address some issues raised by others:

1) Installation - very simple. Remove tubing from old nozzles, remove old nozzles, slide rubber gaskets onto new nozzles, insert nozzles from above through holes in the hood, secure with nuts, insert short piece of tubing from kit onto union and the other end of short tubing onto nozzle then insert existing piece of tubing from old nozzles onto free end of union. This last step preserves the length of washer tubing already installed on the vehicle but you could optionally connect the existing tubing directly onto the new nozzles.

2) Spray Quality - These nozzles spray much more diffusely than my OEM nozzles (much more of a mist instead of a direct spray). This is not better or worse, just different.

3) Spray Aim - This seems to be a sticking point for several people. I can't speak for how well the spray aims for other vehicles, just for how it works on mine. First, these ARE adjustable. The metal key is designed to fit into the spray nozzle for adjustment. The initial adjustment requires some level of force the free the actual nozzles. Use gradually increasing force on the key until the nozzles begin to move freely. Second, the misting quality of the spray means a much greater surface area coverage is possible. This is good because it means perfect aim is not necessary. I was able to adjust mine to hit the top half of the windshield when stationary. When the care is moving, the mist tends to hit on the lower half of the windshield (but the airflow over the windshield draws the liquid up to the upper half).

I think the key to good aim is the angle of the hood on which these nozzles are mounted. For the PT Cruiser it is a very good match. However, I could easily see how a different slant angle on the hood would make this a difficult proposition.

I am extremely satisfied with this product upon initial installation. However I can only give it 4 stars for now because I don't know how well it will perform over time. Direct Chrysler replacement nozzles tend to last about a year on my vehicle. I've read that the turbo gives off excessive heat which cracks the plastic on the OEM nozzles. This product is made of plastic and may very likely suffer the same fate over time. If it lasts for more than a year, I'll revisit this review and update to 5 stars.

    This item was shipped fast (all stores were out of the product due to the recent snowstorm) and was very easy to install. The item also fits my subaru, which is rare as they tend to need very specific parts. The sprayers also work great and didnt need any adjustment for my car! Very pleased!

        the adjust does not effectively direct the spray on the windwhield. I played with it for an hour and could not get it to spray across the windshield. Plenty of pressure in the line, but no direction.

        Comments about Dorman - Help Windshield Washer Nozzle Kit:

        I got these for my 72 Nova, since my original washer nozzles were totally messed up beyond repair. These are nice little nozzles, but nothing absolutely spectacular. they were fairly simple to install, even in my old car. The problem with these is that they are not entirely adjustable, so you have to mess with them quite a bit to get them to spray in the right direction (up). You can shim them a little bit to get them to spray correctly, but it is difficult to get them to do what they are supposed to correctly. I've had these on my car for over a year, and they've held up well.

          Comments about Dorman - Help Windshield Washer Nozzle Kit:

          Install was easy, parts seemed sturdy but the spray was ineffective. From reading the other posts, it seems mine were defective. There was no spray pattern, stream or mist. The washer fluid just sprayed out everywhere randomly as though the nozzle head was defective. I use a small screw driver to try and tighten the small metal nozzle but fluid would shoot out all around and in the middle of the spray head. There was plenty of pressure but most of the fluid never shot more than an inch, then ran down the hood.

          I'll give this product one more chance

              I was happy to find this product online and have it available at the store in my town. Especially after an employee at the same store told me it was a dealer item!When I went to pick it up an hour later, a different employee told me, "we sure are going through a lot of these lately"! It was the hood mounted washer fluid nozzle kit. A selling lesson may be needed.

                  Hi Ext, This part does not come with the installation instructions. However, please try this instructions: You would put the nozzle through the hood or cowl panel and tighten the nut up and then attach the hoses. There should be a small key in the package and you just insert that into the nozzle and rotate the spray nozzle to where it best suits your needs. For help with your project, I recommend purchasing a Haynes or Chilton repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts.

                  A:

                  With reference to this Dorman - Help Windshield Washer Nozzle Kit - Part No. 47137, the following are the instructions for replacing the windshield washer nozzles on a car. Do a thorough inspection of the windshield washer system before you replace the windshield washer nozzles on your car. Make sure there's fluid in the reservoir (with antifreeze for winter months), no kinks in the hoses and that the pump is operable. In some cars, you can remove and repair the nozzles with a small needle or compressed air. Locate the windshield washer nozzles. Many vehicles have them clipped or screwed to the hood, while other cars may have them clipped to each windshield wiper arm. In some rare models, you may have to remove the cowling to access the nozzles. Open the hood of the vehicle for clipped nozzles or nozzles with retaining screws that are attached to the hood. Locate the nozzles and hoses attached to the hood (most likely on the lower edge of the hood closest to the windshield). Some vehicles may require removing an insulated panel that is retained by plastic clips. Pry the clips out and remove the panel (if applicable). Note the way the nozzle is attached to the underside of the hood. Clip-on nozzles will either be attached by a single clip on one side of the nozzle and a retaining anchor on the other end. Other clip-on nozzles may have two retaining clips that need to be squeezed together (with needle-nose pliers, if necessary). Press the clip or clips inward towards the nozzle and it will pop out of the hole in the hood. If the nozzle is retained by screws, simply unscrew them with the screwdriver. If there are hose clips holding the hose to the hood, unfasten the clips (by hand) to allow more movement in the hose-to-clip assembly. Remove the cowling, if applicable, to access the windshield washer nozzles and attached hoses. Most models with this application will have a fairly easy cowling to remove. Retaining plastic push-pins or similar devices will need to be removed with a screwdriver or similar tool to move the cowling. Unclip the nozzle from the windshield wiper arm for models where the nozzle is retained to the wiper arm. These types of nozzle retaining clips can easily be popped off the wiper arm by hand, and require no tools--you don't even need to open the hood. Holding the nozzle in one hand, twist the rubber hose back and forth with the other hand to remove the nozzle from the hose. All nozzles have a tapered end that simply presses into the flexible hose. Because the windshield washer fluid sprays at low pressure, it does not force the nozzle off. Remove the nozzle from the hose (whichever type you have) in this fashion. Insert the end of the new nozzle onto the hose and reassemble by reversing the procedure. Don't forget to refasten the hose retainer clips, or the hoses can kink.
