    As mentioned on this thread

    http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=41673

    Turn the front wheels to the right. Remove the two front screws in the f/n/s inner wing to release the plastic inner wing. Pull the plastic out and you will see the washer bottle and the pump. Pump just pulls out. You can then pull off the two water pipes. The electrical connector has a clip. Bit of thought and it is easy to remove.

    I would imagine that the filter at the bottom of the pump is gunged up. Mine smelled like a sewer. But if you need a pump you have it in your hand.

    When you put it back make sure that its pushed back firmly so that it won't leak. Fill with water to check before putting everything back....

    I believe just the one as there is only one filler bottle. So would make sense to have only one pump.
