Default Washer fluid stopped spraying

99 T6, this happened a year ago and a mechanic charged me $60 to fix this, he did it in like 10 minutes and im pretty sure he did not order any parts.

Now its happening again...

When i pull the stick on the right of the steering the wipers move but no washer fluid comes out, i am at work so i cant spend too much time on it now, i quickly checked the fuses in the door but the steering column fuse was fine

I will look under the car by the fender where the resevoir is when i get home tonight

Any other ideas ?

I would have someone sit in the car and turn the wiper spray on and have you, with the hood open, listen for the washer fluid pump. If it's running, check your fluid level and then check to make sure the hoses are all connected and not spraying out all over the place.

i will try that tomorrow, work was crazy for the past month and sunday will be the first time i can look at it..

basically i will try a few things and see what happens, hopefully its not the pump,. because this happened a year ago i think the lines just got clogged at the jets where they narrow down, will try compressed air from the jets inward with the hood up and hoses disconnected....thanks

Finally got a chance to look under the car and it all makes sense now,

there are several electrical wires under there obviously from the pump and level sensor...

two yellow and two black, BOTH black wires seem to have been cut or chewed through by a mice or something

Im in Vadis and it doesnt show exactly which wire goes where, it just shows the connectors as a whole unit... can anyone PLEASE take a picture of underneath the washer reservoir so i can match the electrical connections???
