Found this on rec.autos.vw, thought I'd share it:

> 2002 jetta This car has dreadful windshield washer nozzles.
> How ever they are adjusted, most of the water goes on the roof
> and over the following cars windshield. Why they had to change
> a perfectly good, industry standard, system...god only knows.
> Any suggestions of a retro fit etc????


FYI, Jetta owners across the nation have actually been
quick to adopt the new standard, and they've scheduled
regular meeting times and locations to accomodate it.
These meetings are alway held in open fields or large
parking lots; when a sufficient number (empirically
determined to be 11 or more) of vehicles have arrived
they are arranged in a tight bumper-to-bumper circle
and, on cue, everybody activates their wiper/washer
systems, thereby irrigating the windshield of the
vehicle behind them while cleansing their own with the
fluid sprayed by the vehicle ahead. Certain groups
even make a point of driving ceremoniously in a circle
while so doing. Experienced members of these groups
report that the entire operation requires no more
than 5 minutes if all members arrive and enter the
formation promptly. It's considered bad form to have
anything but highest quality fluid in your reservoir.

I thought it was intentionally designed that way so the ricer car tailgating the jetta gets pissed on when the washer is activated thereby causing the ricer to back off or change lanes.

Re: Circle Squirt (powerslide23)

I had my MkIII hooked up to spray tailgaters.


Washer fluid dries on contact when sprinkled...

Re: Circle Squirt (SteveD)

Interesting. I've found mine (early '02 Passat) to be a tad on the high side, but felt no need to adjust it. I just wait until I'm going between 10 and 20 MPH to wash - then it goes where it should. There's a little overspray but nothing like what you're describing. Are you washing while stopped?
