No, not those bits... these,


So how do you guys keep your windshield washer jets from freezing up???

I have washer fluid that is supposed to work to "minus Summat" but the jets are freezing up at about -1C

Went on a trip at the weekend and had to stop and clean my screen every 30 miles.... There was no way I could use my wipers because the jets were frozen and I just ended up smearing dirt over the screen. It was better to let the dirt build up then manually remove it!

Any tips from the frozen Canadians???

The tip for you is to purchase some hand warmer packs and some plastic sandwich bags. Activate the hand warmer packs and put them in the plastic bags. Then place the bagged warmer packs on top of the jets. In a few few minutes the jets should be thawed. :)

-19C here last night and my washer jets work fine.
Always try to start using winter washerfluid way before it gets cold to be sure it has flushed out the summer stuff.

I've used it in my previous car and used it since I got my Soul too. I only put in one container at a time and it lasts a long time though and I've only had to refill it once in the 5 and a half months I've had my Soul.
