    Take out front n/s headlight and there it is.

    The picture below shows the location - although in this instance the front bumper is also off - but you can still get access.

    It just pulls off but be ready to push the new one unless you dont mind losing all the contents.Are you sure that the old ones not just bunged up and needs cleaning?

    cheers for that guys, i managed to get a new replacement pump for under a tenna, so if i end up with a spare, i suppose it may always come in handy.

    Can you verify the motor is ok by wiring it to a battery?If so and OK I would then check that you have power to the connectors cos it seems that there may be a break in the wiringbut this would be unusual.Otherwise it could be the stalk

    Motor requires water around the inlet nozzle - had a similar problem after fitting a replacement headlight washer motor - tried it with very little water and not working, but then filled washer bottle full with water and it worked - wierd one!
    Tested on bench dry and did not work.
    Tested power feed to motor and it was live but no motor action.
