I found mine about halfway along each of my front wiper arms, at the end of the thin black pipe

Sorry.... coat

As an apology, I might have one or two around somewhere - I'll check

Mine don't work very well, in fact the nearside one dribbles.
I,ve tried steradent but it hasn't helped much.
Any quick fixes?
(I know this is in the wrong place but hey ho!)

Yup it is, it worked a treat on an old work van.
Seems I could do with a new squirter as well.

Mine were really poor, but after examining pump and system it turned out to be the NRV. Changed those and now immediate response and good jets front and rear

Under the scuttle panel. Once there you may just be able to manipulate the hosing enough to leave the NRV located underneath the small mesh panel which will avoid you having to remove the wipers and scuttle panel in the future.

While you're in there though it's a good time to lubricate the wiper mechanism and clear out any dead leaves/vegetation at each side by the bonnet hinges smile

It will indeed as the lack of NRV will see fluid and pressure going back against the flow - towards the pump. Look a little further down towards the front end of the scuttle panel and there should also be an inline NRV for the rear washer as well.

Nrv turned up today but when I fitted it didn’t work. grr

Looks like the pressure is too low to open it?

Stripped out all pipework and discovered a hole in a pipe which had been rubbing on the wiper mech!!

Popped down local car place and got an inline nrv and used it to join pipes where section with the hole was cut out.. all back together and squirty things working a treat!!!

Looks like not all nrv’s may be the same pressure? Modern cars probably have stronger pumps! laugh

Yep I think so... It was a T one, inlet on the bottom outlets to the sides. However it was so 'strong' I couldn't blow through it and pump couldn't work it I guess. Pushing a small screw driver up it I could feel the spring inside and it was pretty firm...almost like a mini dump valve....guess it was just too strong!! Inline valve I fitted works fine!! Bit weird!!! crazy
