Your jets are clogged up, if you have an air line or access to one, blow out the lines from the nozzle near the wipers, it should clear it up. Pop the hood up and pull a hose off the Y fitting so that the junk doesn't get back in the jets. Then put the hose back on and give it a try, hope this helps.

    Over a period of months the flow from the washers on our 2003 307 gradually reduced until there was nothing although the bottle was full and the pump could be heard. After removing the right front wheel and the inner mudguard liner the bottle can be removed. The pump unclips from the bottle. The pump has two outlet ports. Clipped into the ports is a small cylinder with spouts for the front and rear washer hoses. The pump runs forwards or backwards for either the front or rear wash. Inside the small cylinder is a rubber cylinder in a plastic tube which is a shuttle valve to isolate the two circuits. Over time the rubber cylinder had expanded in length and blocked both circuits. I shaved 1 m.m. from each end and now it works like new. You need to be a bit handy and be careful not to break or bruise any plastic surfaces. A Haynes manual is some very basic help.

Wipers are not working suddenly???

Check your fuse compartment under hood. Fuse 3 & 12 for windshield wipers and washers. More than likely you've overloaded the wiper motor causing a blown fuse.

Peugeot 407, 2.0 litre diesel, 05,loss of power/air surge heard

I am not familiar with the 407 but I would think it is a HDi, if so what you describe is an air leak from a pipe from the pressure side of the turbo, I have had this on a Saab, in that case there was an over pressure switch under the dash and the pipe fell off. Look at the top of the engine, on the inlet side there will be a pipe from the inlet trunking or manifold, it should (maybe with a tee piece in there) go through the bulkhead
