Morning, hope everyone managing to stay safe at the moment!

Just been out and noticed the windscreen washers on the RS3 arent spraying very well. I've tried the old pin to clean them out and it's better but still not quite right. I've had a look on other Audi forums and with the A3/S3 it seems the A6 washers fit. Is that the case with the RS3 too? Has anyone else had a similar problem and what was the solution?

Thanks in advance!

They do - I recall there is a thread over on the 'other network' with someone fitting them - it might even have been their prime resident nutter....

Yes the Mist versions from a bigger model do fit.
Bought mine off eBay.

Poor quality windscreen wash can cause blockage problems as the heater drys the water out & the left residue clogs the jet.

I tried the mist jets but just couldn't get them to a point whsre i was happy with them, so returned back to the originals, which are equally poor to be fair as they block regularly and also pump a lot of screenwash out.

Same for me. First thing I did as the standard ones are dire. Didn't even need to adjust mine so maybe lucky.

The A6 washer jets don't fit on a 8P so stock but custom adjustment by myself for how I want them to wash.

I bought the same A6 ones and sadly they do not work on a RS3 saloon, there is not enough adjustment. Seem fine on a RS3 hatch though, so maybe the boonet/windscreen angle is different
