There are two sorts:
6438 89 WDW WASHER JET - UNTIL RPO 08728 EXCEPT COUPE 2 DOORS
6438 H0 - SINCE RPO 08729 EXCEPT COUPE 2 DOORS
I'd think the earlier sort are the two jet squirty things, the later are mist jets. I seem to recall they were pennies when I bought them from the dealer's but now they're over a fiver each :frown: Both sides are the same.

There are some on ebay but they don't say which they are :roll:

Oh yes they do :( And your next challenge is to find a gas station on the autobahn that has an air line that will dispense air without the need for being attached to a tyre valveImage

(I managed to find a very powerful tap in the gent's, sorry, heron :wink: )
