Dribbling washer jets

Ever since I have moved the washer bottle to the boot I've noticed the washer jets at the front dribble fluid when taking corners quickly or braking harder. It's a bit annoying as it drys and stains

Does anyone else get this after moving the bottle to the back?

I dont really understand why because the bottle is below the level of the jets themselves so it's not like the fluid would travel down from the bottle :?

try turning the bottle round so the outlet is facing the rear of the car first before looping back towards the front

you can get inline one-way valves that would eliminate this problem :D prob from halfords or the like

How would that work

Wouldnt the valve close to stop the water comming out, and therefore stop the jets working as well? :?

Nah I think you misunderstand

The jets work fine when I turn them on. The problem is they leak water when NOT on, under braking and turning corners etc.

zid336 had exactly the same problem they worked fine when used but they dribbled under normal driving so i replaced the offending jet and it was fine.
hope this clears it up :D
