Penny pinching comes to mind! Can it really be much cheaper to manufacture the older style. You'd think if they made them all fan style accross every VAG car it would be best all round.Exactly what I did.
Can't believe the Cupra does not ship with fan jets ( but then neither does the latest Golf R )
... And they worked just fine - big improvement. Just need to fix the aim now, since both are pretty low.Installed mine today - as per this thread, it is as easy as it gets.
Since the car is washed, resisted the urge to try them out
...will report back when I do, but as per my previous post, I got mine used from a breaker.
Great mod. I just done this myself on my Leon , quick install and looks better !!! Thanks for postingTime 5 mins install (1 hour photos )
Fan Jet Part No 5MO 955 985 C 9B9 non heated about £10 (See here eBay item number:221246183308 for an example of heated fans) or eBay item number:321197661391 for the ones I bought. You can pay more for SEAT branded ones from the same dealer but as you won't see the logo only you will know
Pistol Spray No 5FO 955 986
Pic 1 Comparison of pistol and fan . The fan is slightly deeper than the pistol but this did not matter to the install or effectiveness
Pic 2 Fan from top
Pic 3 Underside of fan. All clips are identical. It is a direct replacement by pulling towards the engine from the screen side and then in a downward motion.
Pic 4 A 2mm Allen Key is used to adjust the position of the jets on the screen in a vertical direction only. There is no horizontal adjustment as that is determined by the spray slot.
Pic 5 Underside of the original. Note the 3 jets. Here the black clip which retains the washer fluid tube securely has been slid to the right. Do not attempt to remove it. The pipe then easily pulls off. Fitting is a reverse.
Pic 6 The results from various angles
Comparison of jet of fine droplets covering the screen so well they are almost invisible in this shot. The 3 jets are well defined
Jet seen bottom right

So there you all are. I'll report back after a weeks trial. First impressions are that less fluid is used but that it is better distributed and will reduce wiper/ screen wear.
Mine are not heated , tested hem and seem to work fine ? Weather that’s required on heated version?As well as this mod for anyone who has the headlamp washer system, have a look at making changes via OBDEleven to how the system works.
It can be set depending on how long you hold the washer stalk on or how many times you wash windscreen.
Washer bottle seems to last forever now both fan washers fitted and alterations made.
