Finally in a new van after many months of waiting and disappointments. Ended up in a new Burstner A class on a Fist chassis. That’s a story for another day. All is fantastic with exception to the piss poor washers. They only reach about a quarter of the way up the screen. Is this standard and what do other funsters do to get a clean screen?

I used these arm spray jets as the spray sits a little lower than the ones that come in conversion kit so miss the wiper blade

Amazon product ASIN B089GMFTZP
The conversion kit can be found by searching on the following
Wiper Arm/Blade Washer Jets (4way) Conversion Kit. From Scuttle/bonnet to Wiper arms

Blue Moon yep very easy to do take the tube off the back of existing spray head use the inline non return valve (in the kit) to connect the original tube to new extension tube screw the new 3 way spray head onto the wiper arm loosely at first to find the correct location tighten when happy a couple of small tie wraps to hold the new tube in place. I think there were instructions in the kit as well. But no more than 30 mins.
Some people said it wouldn’t pass a mot with them but I asked the mot inspector he said it was a better option than the original & no issues.
So get the kit which comes with tubes, connectors & 2 washers but I found the water was hitting the wiper arms so bought the other washer jets as per first post

Stationary I adjust mine so they just miss the top of the windscreen, once I am moving the wind pressure makes them hit the screen ok, I just have to remember to adjust them down before the Mot.

Mine are mounted on the underside of the wiper arms, so the blade is always scraping up over a dry screen until it gets to the top of the sweep. Obviously set for a LHD configuration.

On our Frankia, based on a Sprinter 416, the jets are mounted on to the wiper arms and spray just in front of the blade. Works very well.

Might be a bit late now, but I designed and 3D print a washer kit for A class vans based on Fiat chassis. I designed it for the Mobilvetta’s and Roller Team A class vans, but they should work on any Fiat based A class van. Pictures below If your interested.

I had a play with the jets on my A-class last weekend. They are pretty much on the same plane as the windscreen, not mounted a few cm forward like they would be on a panel van. So it's a gnats whisker of adjustment between the bottom of the screen and straight over the roof.

I'm interested if these wiper arm squirters work on the standard Fiat arms...

The Hymer ones are on the arm towards the centre, 4 jets,2 spayings each side of the wiper arm. They work well but you don't 'arf get through a lot of water.
I’ve only put 3nozzles on each blade to try and reduce water consumption. It still uses more, but at least you have better control over where it sprays. Fair play to Hymer who have at least made an effort to improve things. That’s more than can be said for a lot of Motorhome builders.

Hi Paulandchrissy, I’m resurrecting this thread. I’m almost 12 months in now and after numerous attempts to get some form of normality with the washers I’ve given up, they are shite! Please can you PM details, cost etc of the kit you produce?
many thanks

My kit is not just the two nozzles like you buy on Amazon or eBay. I’ve designed and made it with everything you need to fit it. Nozzles (which are adjustable), Bulkhead adapter boss’s to fit in the old original nozzle holes, Piping, Piping clips, and instructions. You don’t need to go off searching for extra bits and bobs to make it work. The pipes I use are EPDM which is fully UV resistant so they should last a long time. All the 3D printed parts are made from ASA which is also fully UV resistant. If anyone is interested in a kit, just PM me. We are however in Spain at the moment, but will be back on the 10th March.

Stay Safe PaulandChrissy

It’s a bit windy lately, but it’s generally pretty sunny. Been getting the odd cloudy days. Comfortably warm on the coast. 19c at the moment 19.30pm. Keep to the SE coast. Inland is cold.
Enjoy PaulandChrissy
