Default Windshield washer question

The washer in my '07 doesn't work.
Checking the fuse is always step #1.
I cannot find it.
Anyone know where it is?

Thanks for answering. I can't believe you answered 37 days ago. I'll have a go at finding this fuse box "behind the plastic cover" today.

I'll bet now that plain water was allowed to freeze in the pump. If it's merely a blown fuse, I'll be happy.

Its fine. Water freezing in the pump usually doesn't present a problem since they are designed to accommodate a certain amount of expansion. If you tried to use the pump and it was frozen and held the button a long time, it might pop the fuse, yes.

It's now 17 days later still and I have JOY to report.
While doing an oil change yesterday I noticed one of the pumps had popped out of the reservoir's base.
The pump has a big barb fitting on it. The bushing it goes into is also a screen. I shoved it in and all was well.

Before yesterday it didn't work and I heard nothing. Now all is well. ???
