As far as I know a repair kit for them is available from Renault

Or, if you are like me and try to keep away from Renault Stealers, you could use a welders tip cleaner to ream out the crud from the jets.
I also drop my windscreen jets in white vinegar for an hour or so.... Not sure how this would affect anything painted tho, but it sure does the job!

Political correctness defined:
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end
