Can I disable my car's headlamp washer jets?

My 2012 Audi A6 is using a lot of screen wash fluid. It has headlamp washers which I suspect are the culprits. Is it feasible (and legal) to disable them?

The headlamp washer jets are a testable item under the MoT. It will result in a Minor fault if it has halogen headlights or a Major fault (and fail) if it has LED or gas discharge systems (HID).
