Thanks for the prompt reply. Yes I can hear the motor. Regarding checking for blockages how do I do this is this in the manual?

I had the same problem the other week..replaced the 10 amp fuse 3 times then decided to use a 15 amp fuse instead along with pure consentrate screen wash..
Check that fuse again mate..
I had the same where the light washers were working but screen washers didn't .. So I can only assume that they have separate pumps/fuses..
If that fails suppose you will have to check the motor..

I experienced this problem, the motor would run but no spray front or rear. The probelm was that the little plastic impeller on the washer motor had become detatched from the motor drive shaft so the shaft was spining but the plastic impeller socket had cracked so was not beeing driven. Solution: new motor.

On my MY06, this failure turned out to be a short caused by chassis rub. After re-wrapping the exposed wire, I also wrapped it in PVC split-loom.
I might have caused this myself by installing the Rasta hidden winch a couple of years ago (which has a replacement bracket for the pump reservoir).

Can anybody advise me if I have heated windscreen washer jets?
I have a '57 plate Disco 3 XS.
During the recent cold spell, the washer jets froze up. I was using the correct mixture of windscreen wash for the temperature.
I was told that all Disco 3s had heated washer jets. Is this the case?
The car is still under Land Rover warranty but when my wife took it to the dealer, they said that because the jets were now working (ambient temperature was above 0 degrees C), they could not check or fix anything. Surely, if the jets are heated, they could have done some sort of check. Unfortunately I was working away from home at the time so could not ask the technicians for advice myself.
The warranty runs out in April. I don't want to face the same problem and eventual cost of replacement of washer jets next winter.
I have searched and searched forums and the internet but there seems to be no other info on this subject.
Thanks in advance.

Just found a wealth of info on heated washer jets on the forum through another post.
For some reason typing 'heated washer jets' into the search engine came up with nothing on the forum so I had to trawl through Google instead.

Replacing fuse did the trick. Both rear and front washer jets now working again. A bit difficult to get to the spare fuses, but patience did the trick.

Washer pump is still working but no water so sounds as identified in earlier posts that pump is u/s. Has anybody replaced the pump and how do you get to it ? ( looks as though headlight and bumper may have to be removed?)
