OK Mine is now repaired.

The pump was working ok but the water was being directed to the rear screen and little pressure was getting to the front jets. I picked up a spare pump unit at a breakers for cheap.

The pump can be replaced very easily by removing the rear seal under the bonnet and taking off the visible grill clip (push the centre pin down) and the grill clip to the front wing (be careful not to break this one). The pump can be removed by carefully working in the space you create under the grill cover. The pump is only held in the reservoir by a spigot through a rubber seal. When it is removed from the reservoir there is enough slack to move it into the open for inspection / change.
The first time I removed the pump I took off all the wiper linkages etc to remove the cover trims completely for access. DO NOT GO THERE .
