    Washer Pump Replacement.

    The washer pump has failed on my car and due to my own stupidity I have broken the washer jet as well. Asuing thise parts can be purchased does anyone have the part numbers and any idea of cost?

    I have looked at the possability of doing the job myself and it doesn't look that hard, are there any pitfals to lok out for or is it harder than it seems?

    Thanks all.

    not sure about the pump, but change the jets for Insignia ones from vaux, only couple quid each and much better spray pattern

    Don't go the Haynes way, take off your near side wheel and arch trim.

    Thank you SQ Man, just the info I was looking for. I have had the wheel arch liner apart yesterday but as I didn't want to damage anything so was a look not pull ,pry, tug and bust exercise.

    is there enough electrical flex to be able to work with the arch on without difficulty ?

    Loads of flex in the cable there

    As said above too no need to take the wheel off or strip the whole inner arch down. Just remove the top and bottom securing screw of the bumper off and pull the inner arch liner back. Having the wheel on full left lock gives enough extra space too
