WANTED: D2 FL headlight washer jets and covers
 
Iíve just bought my S8 back from the chap I sold it to 9 years ago. Itís seen better days now and Iím trying to bring it back to itís former glory.

Among several jobs needed, I need some replacement headlight washer jets and covers. Really struggling to find anything online. I could even be interested in a full bumper if these parts were included.

Iíve also emailed the forum sponsor but thought Iíd try here too.

Thanks in advance.

I looked into this about two years ago and came across another option, namely the jets used in a similar aged A6. The part numbers are 4Z7955101 (passenger side) and 4Z7955102 (driver side). The relevant A8 part numbers are 4D0955989A (passenger side) and 4D0955990A (driver side). All of them are NLA, but you can get ones from the likes of AliExpress.

Here's one on AliExpress similar to the ones I bought for both left and right jets for under £7.00 (just select 'Pair' from options):

Audi Tradition have the jets for under 24 Euro each and the caps (4D0955269 passenger side and 4D0955270 driver side) for under 30 Euro each, but you need to find a way to get them delivered to the UK.

EDIT: Forgot to say, but you can replace the jets in situ.

Bear in mind those numbers for the jets are only for the pop-up bit with the spray nozzle. The body of the assembly which bolts to the bumper is a separate part and is considerably more expensive.

Edit: 'pressure cylinder for headlight washer', 4D0955101A for another £70 Eur a side.

Good point. I was being a bit too literal with the interpretation of the request.

No, my original green one. I sold it to a chap that lives in the same village. I bought the FE thinking it would be a better car but I always preferred the original green one.

Thanks for that, Iíll definitely check them out. Prestige have a couple of the parts I need but not all.

One is there, just missing the cap, the other has the jet and cap missing. Never used the Audi Tradition site. Iíll get an order in as used theyíre a similar price.

Tradition don't deliver to the UK because of Brexit so you have to go through an agent, and so prices on their site aren't really representative due to the handling costs of getting stuff here. Prestige can still buy from Tradition though +++

tonyt102 7th April 2021 04:29 PM

Literally just tried to go though checkout and couldnít find UK...crazy.

Iíll try and get them from Prestige, hopefully the price wonít be too different as I need a front coil spring too which Iím struggling with.

Thanks.
