Windscreen Washer Jets and Door Locks

How the hell do those washer jets come off! I read on here that u twist em round and they just pop off, they twist round ok but they dont pop off! it's really shitting me cos I wanna paint them

I figured out whats wrong with my drivers side lock too, the actual lock itself functions properly, but the hinge thing on the door catch thing doesnt work, well it does work but doesnt work cos the hinge thing for the lock doesnt move enough. Is there anyway I can adjust it or do I need to get me a new catch, I tried taking the catch out to see what I could do with it and I had no luck trying to get all the connections off it so it would come out

I painted my washer jets while still on the car. You'll find that newspaper or whatever slips right underneath easily, so the rest should be self explanatory.

However, I didn't do a great job (just a few coats of paint and that's it) so if I ever need to replace my jets, I'll take more care next time.

PS I too tried and failed to get them off. Sundeep was telling me how it is done but I forget now. :(

I'll give it a go painting them on the car then, I quickly gave that thing under the windscreen and the aerial surround a couple of coats of gloss black and gave the aerial surround a couple of coats of clear aswell and it makes the car look new again. Just needa get the washers matching them. I'll do the thing under the windscreen again properly and do the rear view mirrors, the black surround thing on the back doors and the black things on the tailgate in 3 or 4 coats of gloss black plus a few coats of clear on top. Should be looking real sweet once done

You'll need to dismantle the door. I supect the fitting on the handle is bent or broken or has become detached from the lock mechanism. You have to take all the interior trim (including the remote mirror trim) off to get at it and you need that girlfriend with the double jointed long skinny arms to get inside and detach the handle.

Yep, getting those door locks off are quite tricky.
As i am a qualified mechanic (diesel), i found it took me about 30 minutes to get it out and 10 minutes to get it in.
That's all the trim off, all the links off (what i could). It does take a bit to align the links back in, i just undid the rear window rail guide so i could manouver the lock into place, just a bit of contorsionism and you will get there.

I found it pretty easy to remove when replcing the locks in our EAII.

As someone else said, its good to have little hands.
