The windscreen washer jets on my Citroen are non-adjustable but don't reach the screen, what can I do?

l have a Citroen C4 Picasso. The washers when spraying only just spray onto the bottom of screen. I have looked but there is no way to adjust them like the old type.

Is there any way to get them to spray further up the windscreen?

Unfortunately these washer jets cannot be adjusted in the normal way, and this is an issue commonly experienced by owners. Because the jets cannot be adjusted an inaccurate spray pattern is usually due to a blockage, so we would suggest disconnecting the feed lines and flushing out the system. It may also be possible to adjust the entire jet in its mounting to redirect the spray. Alternatively some owners have replaced the standard washer jets with those from the older Citroen Xantia, which are the adjustable type.
