I received my heated fan jets about a week ago, just waiting for the car now, got them from eBay (China) for about £11. I'll just have to wait and see what they are like but for £11 its no big deal if they are shite

My current 280 has fan jets again from China and never had a problem but I'm sure they cost me more than the new ones and those are not heated.

If you have the 'winter' pack or headlamp washers then it will have heated jets. You could remove one and look to see if it has wires going to the jet assy along with the washer pipe.

I dont have either. I did remove the washer and there isn't any wires in there. Thanks for the help mate, I'll have a look on Ebay for some new ones.

I bought some genuine ones from RPS On-line, think they were £20 inc delivery but that was some time ago.

Friend works at a car dealer and have got him to order me 2 x 5MO 955 985 C 9B9 for £12.50 each. Will pick it up this weekend and see how it fits. Have this and some LEDs to fit.

Finally got the jet washers over the weekend and fitted last night in 5mins
5MO 955 985 C 9B9 definitely fits the non heated trim. Friend got it at mates rate so ended up paying £22 for both which are genuine VW parts.

Super easy to fit these, literally took me 3 minutes to replace both of them thanks to the tips provided in this thread. I followed the recommendation to adjust them to the highest setting before fitment and the spray is spot on.

Super happy and 100% worth it!
What way do you turn for adjusting it to the highest setting?

I think it's clockwise, but you can see the jet moving as you turn the screw, you will probably need to adjust it to it's max height.

Hi All,

Is there a new link available which is also for international shipping?

I entered Ebay UK / DE and it seems like it could be fake although the part number.

Not sure from where to purchase.

Thanks,
