Finally got round to finishing this upgrade, bought the spacers from TPS for 2.80 and fitted the fan jets this evening...very happy with the performance

I even treated the old girl to a new set of wiper blades to cope with the increased water flow

Another little mod I would like to do - fan spray washer jets.

Now reading through the thread I have concluded that my 2008 S8 will need a spacer to fit the SKODA heated fan washer jets. It already has the triple jets as standard.

Not quite. The FL D3 doesn't require the spacer, but the PF D3 does. See the comment by tc4332 (Ray) regarding the reasons.

I know that the ones I bought off AliExpress and fitted to my '08 S8 were fine. I did buy another set to fit the '04 A8, but haven't got around to fitting them. In theory, they should be loose and require the spacers, which I also bought. If I can both parts, I'll try fitting them today and confirm what Ray said.

Thanks. I read Ray's posts and confused myself! It's clear now, the PF requires them if going from a 2-jet to a triple jet (or fan) but the facelifts don't require them. Time to order a set from Aliexpress as TPS want nearly 25+vat for one.

And just to confirm what I said was correct, I've managed to find the new jets and shims and fitted them to the '04 D3, and they work fine. The fiddly bit was fitting the shims.

For those fitting these to a PF D3 that require the addition of shims, I came across this image that might help with how the shims are fitted in relation to everything else.
