Front Windshield Washer pump is not working

Front Windshield Washer pump is not working

HiCustomer I show fuse #27 behind the glove box being for the front washer pump. Check that one first and if it's ok you'll need to check power and ground to the pump.

Hi Marty, thanks for the prompt reply. And if the power and ground to the pump are ok then its the pump probably. Is that hard to replace?

That's correct, you'll need a test light to test across the terminals in the plug. The pumps just press down into the washer reservoir. I've attached a picture below.

Ok,,so if they fail, it looks easy to replace...is it possible the power is disconnected or is it more common they fail?
They fail alot! I would imagine you have a bad pump.
