Default Washer jet issue

Drivers side.
Took it out back to the Y tube, short length is fine, spilt the jet from the 90 bend and what turns out is a rudimental non return piece?
Freed the ball bearing as it was jammed solid and can feel it 'breathing through' when I blow on it, with the ball bearing at either end now.

Bearing occasionally jams, is that fine as it still blows...?
anyhow putting it back together I take it the arrow on the non return piece needs to point to the jets...didn't see it until I had it in bits...

I had this same problem too, and freeing the ball didn’t help matters. Get yourself down Halfords and get a new valve, only costs £2 or so! And yes, arrow pointing direction of fluid flow.

The little metal O rings in the One Way Values degrade over time. I replaced both, jobs a good un!

Parts PFKL562640 - VALVE, ONE WAY (MITSUBA)

I used a small drill bit by hand to bore it out and chucked the ball away. Made no difference to the performance of the jets for about 5 or 6 years of use

I'm insulted! The last time I washed it was at least a year or two before that
