    My front washer pump seems to have failed - 1992 405 TD estate. I've
    taken off the spring holding clip on the big reservoir in front of the
    driver, but I can't work out what fiddly movements are necessary to get
    the reservoir out to change the pump. Any guidance welcome. Thanks.

    No. But I have a 406 and half of the resevoir was eaten by a rat who
    found the lid palatable. So things could be worse.

    If it anything like the rear washer bottle and pump on my 405, then it is a
    simple push fit into a rubber grommit fitted to the bottle.

    Agreed , but it may be just terminals are corroded and need a clean. Worked
    for me - and after raiding local scrap yard for a replacement pump!

    Cheap connectors on later build models.

    Thanks all. I tried cleaning the terminals and put a meter across the
    pump. In the end it was the pump but I was so busy I had to get garage
    to do it. £19 for pump....
