Washer nozzles

Recommended Posts

Ok so I'm in the process of working out all the niggles on my recently purchased '76 '02. I'm at the process of addressing the washer wiper system. i'm happy to say the electrics are all in good nick. however, there is the washer nozzle issue! Now before you say make sure the whole that is the issue,yes I've gone through it and without the nozzles everything is good. i removed nozzles from the car,soaked them overnight in vinegar,ran through my ultrasonic and finally attempted to clean with my welding tip cleaners. Well one is ok but the other is just not playing nicely.Sadly I must report that 
I broke off a tip cleaner in that troublesome git. It has me thinking is there an alternative to these crazy nozzles? or am I stuck with the original design? They don't seem readily available either and the cost is well a bit spendy. Any thoughts???

For future reference...a better tool to ream out plugged nozzles is a short length of MIG wire.  It's softer and more flexible than a small drill bit or welding tip cleaner, and is less likely to break off in the nozzle as it tries to curve around the nozzle's output end...

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
