How to adjust E85 windshield nozzles?

My new-to-me Z4M roadster's windshield nozzles are currently aimed so they do a fantastic job of sprinkling windshield cleaner fluid over the windshield and all over myself and my passenger, but not such a great job of spraying fluid on the windshield itself.

Looking at the nozzles it's not clear to me if/how these are supposed to be adjusted (don't see the usual swivel-able bits I'm familiar with from other cars), and don't wanna just shove something in there and go bananas.

Anyone know what is going on here?

Good question, had a look at mine but I'm not sure there is any mechanism for adjustment.
To know for sure you would have to remove the nozzle from the hood and examine it more closely, you could also insert a thin shim at the back and under the nozzle housing so as to tip it so the stream of washer fluid hits lower down on the windshield.

Find the nozzle, and then take a pin or sewing needle…insert into hole and move to adjust
