Question about Mitsubishi Colt
Windscreen Washer bottle water level good. Tubing good. Spray nozzles clear. No fuse allocated. No audible sound that pump is operating. Windscreen Washer pump u/s? Thank you
Most likely the pump (motor) is gone and needs replacement. However, it is worth checking that fuse allocated to windscreen washer is intact. Furthermore, you may also need to check the wiring for flow of current at lever end (handle on the steering wheel) and wires connecting to pump on the water reservoir.

the motor is at the bottom of the bottle there should be a couple of screws that you will have to remove and it should then be able to pull it out to replace to motor/

try taking a pin and cleaning the holes on the squirters and if that does not work check the washer pump it is located on the washer fluid tank

Open the bonnet. Use a 10mm socket to remove the bolt holding the water bottle to the shell of the car. Disconnect the 2 eletrical connections to the water bottle. The water bottle will now pull out. Remove the little pump by pulling it up from its housing in the water bottle. You will now see a little black, rubber 'thing'. Remove this and you will have the filter. Thoroughly wash this and remove and of the grime. Take a hose and rinse the water bottle itself thoroughly, romoveing any dirt or cleaner fluid. Reverse the process (put it all back together). This will sort it out.
The problem is using viscose based cleaner fluids. BMW will charge you £120.00 + VAT to resolve this problem. I did it last night in 10 minutes for Zero pounds sterling. Then use an ethanol based cleaner fluid (Lidl £1.49 for a litre, window spray cleaner). BMW will charge you £15.00 + vat for 500 ml.
I am not mechanically minded, but this job was a piece of ****. Good luck!
