Hello and welcome to the forum.

The first thing to do is locate the washer bottle and see if you have a 12 volt feed and an earth to the pump when the switch is operated.If you have,then it's the pump thats faulty(the pump runs the front and rear washers,the feed and earth are just swapped over depending on which one is operated).If you don't a 12 volt feed,than either a fuse has gone or the switch/wiring is faulty.

I suspect the pump may have burnt out if the reservoir has been run empty.You might be able to give the pump the few taps and it might free it's self,but it's sure to give problems again at some stage in the future......

Hope this helps,and let us know how you get on.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
