Is it coming out normal or trickling out of one. If it is normal then the pump will be ok. If not then i'd replace the jets first as they will be a lot cheaper if you can't unblock them.

Like I said. If you lift the bonnet and disconnect the tubes to the bottom of the jets then operate it. If water comes out of them then your pump will be fine.

I found a 20cc plastic hypodermic syringe (less needle - about 50p from a pharmacy) was useful. Fill with water, butt up to the blocked jet and squeeze to flush the jet through backwards.

Disconnect the pipe from the bottom of the jet, otherwise you get an eyeful of screenwash coming back at you out of the other jets and you might only shift the blockage from one jet to another.

if you, or a mate has a compressor, spray that down all the jets, or maybe a can of compressed air or something?
