5M0 955 985.
I've got a couple of these, was going to try and gut them and retrofit into the versions on my S2 and 80.
Not got round to it yet.
Paid 2.05 each from vagparts, but as they are no more, dealer price is coming out at 3.10 a pop.

Just be careful though - those prices look like they are for non heated versions...........

Heated versions are 5MO 955 986 9B9 and are about 12 each. Rolling Eyes

Hmmm, strange one. Looks like vagparts put the wrong part number on the packets they both came in.
These here are definitely heated ones, have wiring coming away from them just like the OEM in both cars now.
I should have checked the part itself or the FA more carefully.

Bonus for me then Very Happy

Yep, Richard is spot on,5MO 955 986 is the heated version.

Jas let use know how you get on... for richards sake the B4 cars skooshers are awful. my issue is when the connection pop off the bottom with the slightest bit of back pressure on cold mornings, and I get a lot where I live. heated would be a necessity, curious to see how these fair when it gets sub zero.

Out of curiosity which bit is heated, just the nozzle? or a coil round the pipe coming in?

As a sideways one the wipers, i have the big Slabby ones on the A6 one slab of rubber no metal, love them to bits..can you retro fit these to the B6/B4 cars?

Iain check out this thread: Aero Wipers.

Do our B6's have heated jets do you know?

Jesus 95! thats the ones that cam e with my A6 when we bought it, clean them every once in a while they hold a LOT of grime, but i think they wipe far better.

do we have heated jets? I havent a bloody clue. i never skoosh on cold days anyway, force of habit over the years of going oh crap, then flipping the bonnet on the coupe and plugging the water jets back in... Smile

Someone else to the rescue!

On the 90, 80 and Coupe etc versions, the nozzles themselves are heated, not the pipe.
That's assuming you have them. Pull the foam bung out where the nozzle is on the underside, if there's two wires coming from the jet module, there are heated.
That's not to say they aren't burnt out though.
Just changed both of Paulgo's last weekend. Bugger of a job to get them out.
