Some of the Dodge vans I've dealt with in the past had them. Lates eighties early nineties full size. You could probably find the fitting in a salvage yard. Been thinking about doing this to my own van.

Besides being cool and different, is there any benefit to having a three-way nozzle or wet-arm wiper over the single jet nozzle?

As for other compatible nozzles, I recall there being a problem finding a vehicle with the proper spray angle. Not saying it doesn't exist, it just might be difficult to find and/or adapt. Vanagons suffer from blunt nose syndrome.

I ski every weekend & coming home in the sleet/mud/muck/sand etc
& I just cant see sometimes (read hell shock last weekend the 18 wheel blast)
I am hoping i guess that getting more fluid on the window in the 'right' place
is gonna let me see the road & if the fluid is right on the arm then its not gonna streak cause there will be fluid all along the blade length ?

I agree, more fluid to windshield has got to better. Kind dumb that with big windshield like that they put such pidley-assed washer jets on them.

Dodge Van arm mounted washer nozzles clip right on the arm with no problem, and will get the wash right to the glass--where ya going to get the washer hoses from, up to the nozzles ,and still have them look like they belong there?

This might be the only problem, unless you wanna drill a couple of holes in the cowel.

I have a 3 squirter on the drivers side, fantastic upgrade. Really makes a huge difference in messy driving conditions. I ordered a set from a ebay england vendor & split the cost with a buddy.

Now that I'm thinking about it the later Mopar nozzles are two way, and mount on the front cowel.

They give a nice heavy dual spray pattern on the glass.

Might be able to pick a couple up at a bone yard , and make them fit pretty easy.

I think from 97 on up are the dual nozzle cowel mounts.

Thanks for the tip BlackDog. Here's a link to eBay UK.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/VW-T3-T25-CAMPER-WINDSCREEN-...45ebcad6dc

Does sound promising when you point it out - six jets of fluid as opposed to two.

$64.00 USD + shipping is steep for a couple nozzles though. Maybe one of the US vendors could be convinced to bring some in, even for a limited run.

OK you gear HEADs WTF did he get these matched up from
BlackDog did you see any interesting markings on the nozzles that gave away what vehicle he got these from ?
THERE IS NO WAY they are custom these guys have just figured out what OEM nozzle happens to be a direct fit

Do you have the Smart car in the States? Made by Mercedes... The three-jet washers are from the first-gen Smart Four-Two. Cheaper to buy directly from the dealer I think.

Had a set of these on a previous syncro and the are simply excellent!

yes, we have the samart car here. I thought that there was issues with getting it to aim down enough to hit the windshield. Will have to go by the dealer and buy one for a test fit. Tanks for the info taigagreen

The individual jets can be adjusted with a needle. You will have to make your own gasket, no big deal.

Just when I was running low on projects, you guys start putting stuff in my head!

Let us know how that Smart car project work out. My neighbor has two in his driveway so maybe I'll cruise over and take a look.

My 02 Nissan Pathfinder has 3-way sprayers. I wonder if they would work.
