Hi thanks

ok your issue is caused a blocked washer pump filter /gauze

what can happen overtime especially if cheaper screen washes are used is that the filter becomes blocked by conjelled screen wash (a type of gunk/jelly )

This needs to be removed from the filter

if you go under the vehicle on the side of the washer bottle

you will see the bottom of the washer bottle and a black pump with one multiplug and 2 pipes attached

you need to remove this pump pull it outward (out of the black seal )

Let the washer fluid drain if it does if not then carefully pull the black rubber filter out abs the washer fluid will drain out

Clean the filter gauze and refit and refill

this will resolve your issue

kindest regards ***** *****
