    I believe its the pump but can someone confirm.

    The wipers come on but no water? Cant hear the motor anymore either? What could it be? If it is the pump is it advised to buy original or are copies ok?

    Yes had to replace mine a couple of years back. Euro or gsf.
    Located drivers front wheel arch, easy enough to change.

    Frozen water is an option and deffo clean out your filters in the bottle before doing anything - it will make a difference regardless.

    Check the fuse? Operating the washer pumps when frozen can blow a fuse easy enough. If not a fuse put a multi meter on the pump and operate the washers. If you have a feed but the pumps not operating. Then you know its the pump. Easy enough to do
