    I think there maybe a how 2 for this, but remove n/s wheel and arch liner to expose the washer bottle, remove pump and the filter is exposed, either clean it or cut it out, its up to you
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thumbs up

    as posted the other day by moi!!!

    cheats method: 1) jack up pass side of car and support with axle
    stand!!!

    2) turn wheel full lock right (if i remember!) to show 3/4
    small torx screws, undo said torx screws and pull inner
    wing gently back.

    3) should be able to see washer pump/motor sat in
    washer reservoir,disconnect electrical plug and
    remove with a gentle pull/wobble movement.

    4) the motor will have a little rubber gauze boot/ cover
    on this will
    be (hopefully) bunged up with bluey green
    screenwash concentrate, remove and wash through.

    5) now its upto whether you try as is after reassembly
    or put a small slit with some side cutters
    (as i have done about 6 times on
    different cars with no probs) then put back together!

    ** forgot to say be prepared to lose your screenwash contents!!!

    hope this helps and fixes your prob.

    i'm going to have to do it too, only had the car 3 weeks and noticed the washers slowing down and taking a little longer to come on. i thought i was running out of water, so took the lid of and found the dip stick has blue slime on it, so i suspect a blocked filter too

    Have you tried syphoning out the slimy water and adding boiling water try this a couple of times it worked for me as the boiling water disolves the slime, mine work fine know, the blue slime was the washer fluid additive, I added too much.
