    2009 B180/W245 - how to access washer jets?

    My driver's side washer jet keeps getting blocked. I can temporarily clear its holes by shoving a pin down 'em, but it's only a matter of time before they clog again. I've looked but I can't see immediately see how to access it to remove for cleaning or replacement. Any pointers would be...

    Reducing wheel sizes?

    Can I replace my 225/40/18 wheels and tyres with a smaller size to improve ride quality as my B Class Sport has a harsh ride. I thought if I got new wheels and tyres with a deeper sidewall then the ride would be less harsh? I realise speedo readings would be altered .
