Insane..
I will shortly need to replace them
MB quote £82.00 , as they claim you can only buy complete kit with jets and pipes!

Tried to look elsewhere..
The jet assemblies probably only cost about a tenner each.... any ideas?

Dreaming of a CL55k - one day maybe....
Why do they need replacing? If scaled up then worth changing pipes anyhow.

Can you remove and put them overnight in a descale?

Main pipes are fine....
More like a blockage inside the unit

Pull the jets with pair of pliers and run without the jets to clear any debris. The jets fit only one way.

Clean the jets..........

I can confirm, happened to me too, probably clogged. You have to carefully clean the holes without enlarging them or the jet will be deviated

Take off the pipework and back flush the jets. Good time to glush the tank as it may have stated to slime up, clean the circuit too.


assuming this is your model, look in 7zap for the correct pn, but seems the jets and jet cover are all one part, the jets rarely fail, usually due to gunk - causing low pressure, also pump or a split pipe, a very simple system.

They will be that price as they will have heating elements in them and the pipe work hence needing replacing as one unit, had to do this recently on mine easy diy job but just have to bite the bullet in the cost sometimes

Dumped in descale... freed 2 out of 3 jets in each head...
Replaced rear wiper arm... easy!

I would also clean the tank and filter. To stop any further scaling, use deionised water when making up your screen wash.

I got a new hose and jet set for my W212 from MB Grangemouth for about £50.
Because the washer nozzles are heated on my car, the whole thing comes as a wired loom plus jets and pipes assembly. The wiring for the jets heater is bonded into the base of the jets and couldn't be redone.

I've lost the centre out of one of the washer nozzles due to severe cracking of the casing, so I had no choice but to replace.
