If a car has a fixed screen it does need washers, even if it didn't have them as new, it's one of the few things that doesn't have an age cut off.

As those above I've got away with a squeezy bottle in the past, or you could take out the screen for the test - you don't need washers or wipers then!

Well, I had to fit washers to my '55 to pass the MOT. Real pain too! The small jets are there, but blocked, so I cut a pair into the grill in front of the screen. Plus a flat bag on the inner wing. Got the kit from Wheels day for about £10 from a company in Guildford
