Alternate washer pump mechanism
My (early) 53 plate Scenic 2 has a different washer pump - in my case the impeller simply spins different ways for the front vs rear washers.
Following dismantling of the two halves of the pump, the motor still worked. But when assembled, nothing. I finally tracked this down to a swelling of the gland between the motor and the impeller: it had swollen and was acting as a brake on the impeller. I skimmed it with a bit of sandpaper - to get at it you need to break open the black part of the pump along the visible line. It's easier to re-assemble if you put the white half onto the half of the black, then finally put the other half of the black on. However, it is hard to get the two black halves together - I used a black and decker workmate as a vice.
