windshield squirters

Just wondering if anyone knows if or has done a windshield squirter swap from another vehicle. I'm planning on taking a trip to pick a part this week and might try to grab a pair from an explorer or something.

I'm not digging the stock squirt pattern anymore...i want more of a fan pattern instead of the fluid spraying almost over my cab.

I was thinking the other day how it's frustrating that the squirters are way too powerful and direct on my truck....if you use them when you are sitting, the fluid runs down long after the wind shield wipers have swiped a few times.

I too was irritated with them recently when my windshield was frozen and i was trying to look though a 2 inch wide melted spot because thats the only spot mine washers hit!

$20 seems a bit steep?

I put new sprayers on my Volvo 240 for $4 each

P.S. - Someone could make a killing if they have a site as well designed and accessible as IPD (out of Portland, OR) for Toyota trucks!

the water pics are kinda junk doesnt show how it really is...had to kinda squirt a lot on top the windows to show you how the spray is. its more of a mist rather than a jet shot

They work pretty well, they would actually work better on the Toyota if they fit. On my 240 the sprayer location is a tad too far away from the wind shield and they spray wider than I'd like. But they are better than clogged ones!

Volvo owners are pretty lucky for parts websties. There is also www.fcpgroton.com on the east coast. Not as well designed as IPD, but they break down everything that fits exactly to your year model.

I just now used a really small pointed diamond dremel tool and shoved it in each of the holes on the stock ones, and it actually kind of helped. It made the stream of water sloppy so it splatters over a bigger area.
Im going to take them off tomorrow and soak them in something to free up the adjusters so i can aim them better.

so today i went to pick a part and just went wild on collecting squirters. i ending up using a pair from a volvo.

they don't fit perfectly but i use some black silicon and a plastic washer to make them fit for now. the weather here is a tad too cold to do any type of bondo/glass work so i'm not going to make any extra holes. for now though, they're working perfectly and i have a great fan pattern that covers my entire windshield.
