So, are you saying that if I procure Swift nozzles, and I can manage to remove the nozzles on my Zen and fit the new one's in its place, it will work fine, nothing else needs to be done.

No change in the water pump (or whatever does it behind the scene), no change in hose leading to the nozzle (if there is one), no additional washers (anything for sealing) required? Is it so simple?

I would hate to see water leaking from the base of the nozzle, there are chances of this happening if the job is not done properly right?

1) The hose fits perfectly on to the nozzle. So, there is zero chance of a leak here.

2) The only difference is in the way, nozzle is attached to the body of the car. The swift nozzle is a bit more broader. But, it'll fit nicely into it.

3) You don't need to make any other modification. Just the nozzle is all what you need to buy. Get it done by your service center and ask them to calibrate the direction of the water.

To conclude, it's so simple.

Hi Amalji,

Thanks a lot for the tip.
I got this fitted on my Esteem on Friday.
Works great! Covers almost the whole windscreen.
Got it done at Sah & Sanghi.
A bit of a struggle getting the old nozzles out.
No problem putting the new ones in.

Regards,

SS

Yeah, I was also having problems, getting the old nozzle out. Been there for almost a decade. So, quite natural.

Infact, the durability of water has been OK. I use it frequently. I haven't changed the water since the time, I fitted this mod on my car.

After seeing this thread, I too went in for the upgrade of the wiper nozzles!

Tried out the Wagon R's nozzle (3 directions) and it is also a direct fit on the Zen. Only problem is it's a SGP (not MGP) and costs INR 298/- for a single nozzle!

The water got over super fast with the Wagon R's nozzles and I had them changed to the Swift Nozzles at 102/- for the pair!
Thank You Amalji for sharing this information.

Reviving an Old thread!!

Dear Amalji,

Can you please share the Part Number if available with you ?
Want to get this Modification done to my M-800.

As there is lots of part sharing in Maruti Cars. I assume, it would be a direct fit in M-800 as well.

Thanks for sharing this very useful & simple DIY.

I don't have the part number with me now. What I would recommend is to take your car to a MASS where you have some workers whom you know off.
Tell them that you need a better nozzle with more holes to spray the water. Swift / Wagon R or any other Maruti. They will be able to suggest you which one has a higher probability of replacing the one in your M800.

I called up Rajan Sir of Autoteam Maruti Service Zone, Kochi and he told that if it's Maruti 800 Type 2 ( where the nozzle is fixed on the bonnet and not on the grills below the windshield ), this mod is possible. The Swift's nozzle should work fine.

Thanks a Lot Amalji for the quick response!!
Yes, mine is a M-800 Type-II. Hence, assuming this would be an easy DIY.

Will procure the same this weekend & update.
Many Thanks!!

Today, went to Local Spare Parts shop near my home.
Got the Nozzles with Dual Jets for Rs.40 & Installed them.
They are a direct fit, No Modifications required at all.

Now, the Spray is excellent from 4 Jets. 2 each Nozzle.

Thanks Amalji, for the information
