    They should operate with the headlamps in the dipped on position and the wipers in the full on position

    What you might want to do is have someone in the drivers seat, ask them to apply water to the windscreen after 10 sweeps of the wipers (to prevent windscreen damage)
    You then stand at the front of the vehicle and can observe

    The headlight washers will work when your headlights are turned on and you activate your windscreen wash, simples. Although there is a small interval of 2 minutes i believe where they wont reactivate to save wasting your screenwash. To add to this if they try to activate them in extreme cold where the bumper insert are frozen this pops the fuse as a safety cut out as not to cause any damage to the pump etc.

    I would check the fuse in the fuse box in the engine bay. I cant remember what fuse it is off the top of my head but its listed in the owners manual.

    As mentioned - headlights on, windscreen washers on and every two minutes or so headlight washers will work too. Simples.

    They should do, as leaving the lights on and headlight washers will only operate once
    Switch the wipers on, then operate the windscreen washers (to prevent damage to the windscreen), and compare
    After about the fourth operation of the windscreen washers the headlight washers should also operate briefly

    It's similar to the rear wiper which is intergrated to the reverse switch circuit, there is no bypass for that either
