    Extremely easy mate. Just try catching all the fluid out of the bottle. You will need to drop the bumper for access though (Or I suppose you could lie underneath the front and do it that way but bumper off is easiest). Unplug the plug (Push the metal clip) and remove, Opposite to fit

    I've just changed my washer pump today as mine had gone, i jacked it up on the passenger side and took the front grill off, bumper off as it gives u better access to the washer bottle, u can do it with bumper still on but its a lot more fiddly and it aint that hard to get the bumper off, washer pump cost £12 plus VAT, can get them off ebay aswell, think there about £20 from dealer

    I had a problem with that too. But before changing a washer boottle I recomend to check a washer pump because there is a rubber and it can be blocked so water can't go through. I cleaned it and it helped

    if u look under the car to the bottom of the bottle u will see a couple of wee hose's make sure they are connected to the bottle as i had this problem and it was as simple as sliding the wee hose back onto the bottle .

    If you can get the pump out, there is a little rubber filter fitted to the bottom of the pump as mentioned. Good chance this is blocked.
