Unless the car has headlamp washers there is only one washer pump. It changes direction to pump water either to the front or rear when its polarity is changed. Access is by removing the front bumper but I have heard of people claiming to get access via the front right inner plastic mud catcher. It is remotely possible it is filled with crud - so why not try pouring hot water into the bottle - I have used this method successfully on a few occasions and you have nothing to loose. A replacement pump is around 20 - this does not include fitting
