febi launches 3D printed Headlight Washer Nozzle

Febi has announced a problem arising on some Audi models can now be resolved with a product offered under the febiPLUS product range.

The 3D printed Headlight Washer Nozzle provides the aftermarket with an alternative solution. Made from nylon and reinforced with carbon fibres, it is described as the first component produced using 3D printing technology by bilstein group Engineering.

A headlight washer nozzle has been designed to give a spray pattern to clean the headlight lens. When the headlights are switched on, the headlight washers are operated after every five to six applications of the windscreen wipers. The washer fluid is then applied to the headlights in order to keep the lens clean and to ensure that the headlight beam pattern is not distorted.

However, during the colder months, it is common that water residue will freeze, thus forcing the headlight washer nozzle out of the holder.

As the headlight washer nozzle is not available separately from Audi, this reportedly represents a cost-saving to the vehicle owner as they do not have to purchase the complete washer nozzle assembly in order to replace the faulty component.
