my laguna had the same symptoms.

it is one pump (tho think the headlamp washers are on a different one), but no siplicity! Was told it has a ball bearing within, that selects th relevant front or back windscreen jet. Mine had become blocked, and at the time the easiest thing to do was replace the whole pump at a cost of about 80, as i didnt know how to access the pump without removing bumper etc.

BUT, i have since read on the forum, that emptying the washer bottle and putting warm/hot water in it can break down any gunk that may be clogging the pump. May need to be repeated a few times, whilst also operating both front and back jets.

Hope you get it sorted
