windscreen washer jets & wiper sync.

I have read previous postings on windscreen washer jets,, one or two mention this but no follow through with cures.
I have an essentially new grand modus,, prior to this I had a Kangoo which had a standard washer jet/s,, solid water jets,,, no problems,,,, this modus has a spray type like mist,,, its ruddy useless at clearing the windscreen of muck when the weather is bad,, others must have experienced this spray/mist system and found as I have that its no dammed good. My question is has anyone had the nozzles changed to a standard jet,, and how much and where,, who did it. If I canít see a cheap way to dramatically improve mine then I shall back it to the main dealer as a warranty job.

Also,, the wipers are synchronised for left hand drives,, in other words the passenger wiper follows the drivers to rest position,, leaving a band of snow or whatever over the drivers view,, it seems they have not bothered to re orientate them for right hand drives. If it were a stone tone chip in the drivers wiper blade vision it would have to be changed,, yet by design this is deliberate every wiper cycle, really bad when its snowing especially,,,

Can any dealer or technician give me any pointers on this please,, this must have been raised by customers before,,, I would have thought? There is no way I can drive a car with a washer system like this for years, I have to do something about it asap,, any comments from other who have experienced this would also be appreciated, thanks.
