I know this has been answered 100 times already but the Ssearch function just isn't cutting it. Is the windshield washer pump located by the wiper motor or somewhere else? I tried following all the tubing but it stumped me. When I turn on the washer pump it is complete silence but the wiper blades come on as they should. I am figuring the pump is just dead. Any help is appreciated, especially the location of this pump. Thanks!

The pump is located in the wiper motor. The rounded part next to the brake booster. It comes in from the bottom of the wiper motor. Hope this helps.

I see it is attached by 3 bolts. Once I remove the motor is it a simple process? Thank you!

the washer pump is held in the wiper motor by a clip, undo the clip,(you'll most likely break it) and pull the washer motor out. It goes in at a certain way, pay attention when you remove it. Sorry, I don't have a pic.

You can just pull the washer motor out, it usually has a foam ring that holds it up in there. You do not need to pull the wiper motor out, just pull down on it.

Not easy! My neighbor and I tried and we could not get our hands underneath. Just no room. Out came the fluid reservoir and we could not get the pump to budge. Saw the clip mentioned but too much force was being exerted. We quit and I took it to a shop. It took them an hour! Fortunately they cut me some slack since most of it was apart. $15 for an Anco pump on ebay and $30 shop labor and it all works again. Whew!!!
