Thanks for the guide. Had a buddy just recently take one of these pumps out of a totaled 328 and same thing had a clogged end. So didn't have to use this, but I was prepared and was spot on with your walk through.

If you can here your motor and no fluid comes out its just clogged!

Well, it's warmed up a bit here and my washer are working. I'm still going to pull it apart and clean it though.

I guess water must have got into the antifreeze (washer fluid).

Storm, once we cleaned the filter on the motor that accumulates the gunk, we took the washer fluid reservoir completely out and drained, rinsed, and made sure no more pieces were floating around. Then we pored water into the washer fluid area of the engine and let it drain in to the bucket to make sure there wasn't anything else in the tubing.

When I removed the pump, I didn't realize that the filter had come off the rubber grommet (I thought the rubber grommet was the filter). Now my washer works, but I didn't realize until a day after fixing it that it is now working because the (most likely) clogged filter just fell off into the reservoir. Now that my pump has not filter, is this going to be an issue? Would it just be easier to get the part off amazon ($5) that has the rubber grommet and filter and just swap it out and leave the old filter in the reservoir?

Dear OP,
could you please re-upload all the photos again, I believe the photo server is down. And I really need some instruction from the photos.
Thanks!
