Thanks Dave, mine was so close it looked like a single piece. I pulled it apart tonight and adjusted things it helped some but still had some dribbled. I'll test it more out Tuesday. I ordered the other ones as well so either way should solve the issue.

I was able to find all the parts available at NAPA and in-stock. Dorman product #47137 and NAPA Part Number: NOE 6651523 and a 4 way vacuum hose connector / NAPA Part Number: CRB 2616, plus picked up 3' of 3/16 vacuum hose.

DNasty777 No problem, glad I could help. At least all the problems I had with my A4 are becoming useful!

Thank you! Beats the prices I'd found on eBay and other places, placed and order to give them a try!

Thanks again!!!

DNasty777 Call U.S. Plastics, I'd be surprised if they didn't have something to fit your needs. I used their stuff for all the check valves in my vacuum system on my A4.

Y-Guy So asnwering my own question from above, I think I've narrowed down the problem at least for the 2011. What I need to add is a Windshield Washer Check Valve. With that it should prevent the fluid from draining back down the tube. I think that is the problem I'm having with the fluid burping on my hood before it sprays on the windshield. I was at NAPA yesterday but the kids working were not much help so I'm going to go back when somebody other then a Mouse Jockey is working the counter so we can find a cheap Check Valve.

Y-Guy The Dorman nozzles are adjustable so you can aim them up/down/side to side. I'm able to get the spray to land in the lower 60% of the windshield which was the area I wanted to cover.

02-19-2014 12:59 PM
IrishRed This is awesome. I installed a light bar on my hood that blocks a good 50% of my windown spray. This will be a perfect solution!

Deceptionz99 OMG I'm so glad someone bumped this thread. I have been complaining about my Crappy factory nozzle all winter. Definitely gonna try this mod. For your splitters did you just put the hose over it and it won't leak or did you need like really tiny hose clamps on them

Y-Guy Bumping this for a question. I did this mod Sunday, found all the parts at NAPA had it installed in about 15 minutes. The only issue I'm having is what I call the Dorman Drizzle. When I activate the washer fluid it spits a fair amount on the hood before it sprays on the windshield. The coverage is great, but I can't seem to figure out how to prevent it from burping on my hood.

You will probably like the hidden antenna i just did. I mounted the oem antenna inside right rear under the rollbar padding. (sub $15) I covered the fender hole with a trailbadge like on the drivers side. Works great and cleans up the fender and view from the windshield. Another cheapo is paint the muffler flat black with heat resistant header paint, not my idea seen it at the 2013 NYC auto show and i believe other forum members did it prior. Thanks for your comments.

Metonymy I just did this mod and I love it! I found a way to make the install much cleaner. As a matter of fact, you can't even tell I did anything (from under the hood at least).

I'll post up photos and an end result video here in a bit.

IBgeocaching Thanks deep blue for the vid. Did the mod yesterday but still have to tuck things. The nozzles put out more of a fine mist than factory. would like to raise the mist height just a tad though. It sure does get all the windshield though.
