Have you tried taking the tube that goes to the washer jets off and blowing back towards the motor ? This may clear a blockage.

remove wheel arch liner make sure pump is pumping through pipe if pumping suspect blocked jets, if not replace pump. They freeze you try and use them and snap off impeller.

Polar says it's behind the wheel arch liner, I did the same job on my b9 with a replacement obtained on eBay , it took about 30 mins to do, it will make life easier if you jet wash the arch line before starting work, also stand back as you remove the pump from the tank as the water will flood out !

If it's similar to my b9 the procedure is
Remove wheel
Remove clips and arch liner
Unclip pump electrics
Pull pump from tank
Swap pipes from old pump to the new one.
Reassembly is the reverse of above .

You may find it has a clogged up rubber boot/seal around the pump, kinda like a grommet that fits in the bottle with a rubber sock with small piercings in the end that clog up, often a whip out and clean will allow it to fill again and pump once more, not all have this but it can totally screw your pumps operation up Wink
