Found this on another forum and though it was a fantastic idea.

Mod allows the use of sprayers without activating the wipers.

    I hate the factory two-stream as well. If you could mod it, I would put all three improvements together:

    - spray without wipers
    - fan instead of two streams
    - heated fluid

      You can change the spray pattern by swapping nozzles with ones from the newer subarus.

      For heated fluid, it will never be hot enough to stay hot while flying through the air, and it would turn to steam in winter.

        So would the nozzles from say an '08-'14 fit on an '02-'07 then?

          Thats basically what I was reading, start by taking out your nozzle to see the shape of the hole, as long as it looks similar it should fit. Or worst case test it to make sure it sprays how you want and then just sand it down and glue it in place from below.

            When I had swapped out the nozzles on another forester with some generic ones with a fan spray pattern, at their highest setting they would barely spray the bottom 1/3 of the windshield.  Hopefully newer forester ones account for the flat-ish hood

              Nice, I was thinking of trying to find a way to lengthen the time of spray prior to the wipers activating, especially on the rear one.  But removing that resistor '183' altogether is nice as you can manually put the wipers on intermittent or full wipe after you've gotten a good spray.

              Hopefully there's something similar for the rear.  Gotta find a electrical diagram for the rear switch now.

                The 14+ foresters are a mixed bag. If you have Eyesight you have 3 nozzels. If you dont you have 2. The two main nozzels are Fan and the eyesight is a Jet/Stream. My Driver side only shoots at the lower 1/3. Passenger is at 1/2 and Eyesight shoots in the upper 1/3 in the center... often over shooting and spraying into the open sunroof in the summer :( you win some you lose some I guess, I dont hate it but its not great coverage. 2 High Quality nozzels would surely do the job of three and the pump is super weak in these temps too. Its often not able to spray any higher than the bottom 1/4 on a cold start
