Rear Window Nozzle/TPMS
« on: March 02, 2024, 20:31:16 »
Hi....2017 i10, the rear window nozzle sprays water too far missing the window. What is the easiest way to adjust this or do I need to take it to garage?

Also can't get TPMS light to go out despite tyre pressure checked and correct. Any ideas?

Thanks for help

From what I remember lots of Hyundai and Kia washer jets are fixed in one position and not adjustable .. this is the case on the ix20.. have a look at this vid below.. with the TPMS .. just over-inflate the tyre and reduce the pressure to what it's supposed to be..  TPMS sensors have a battery in them so they usually last around 4 years so if over-inflating and reducing the pressure doesn't work it may be the sensor.. you don't have to go to Hyundai for a replacement you can use an independent.. link below..

that rear window nozzle spraying water all over except where it's supposed to go sounds like a classic case of misalignment. Luckily, adjusting it should be a piece of cake. Most rear window nozzles can be adjusted by using a pin or a needle to carefully direct the spray where it needs to be. Try gently nudging it in the direction you want it to go. If that doesn't do the trick, you might need to pop the nozzle cover off for a closer look or even adjust the hose behind it. Just take it slow and easy to avoid breaking anything.
