Default windscreen washer problem

I am having problems with my washers.
I can hear the pump working, but all that comes out of both washers is a dribble and bubbles.
Before I go about rooting around for the problem does anyone have any idea what it might be?

Change the washer jets. Drain and flush the tank before installing the new jets. Stick to expensive fluids from now on. They get so clugged that nothing helps. Tried to clean mine with citric acid but didn't really help. Only nwe ones from the dealers cured it.

This is the cahanging procedure. It's in russian but the pics speak for themselves.

As you unplug the old jets check the flow of water in the pipes, mine were crudded up and needed a soak in hot bleachy water for an hour.

Yep, I had poor flow on one side and a new nozzle sorted it.

Easy to change. Unclip the padding underneath the bonnet and you can get to push the jet out upwards. It helps if you have a plastic pry tool that you can lever it up with at the same time.

I could hear my pump working but not much pressure
on the 307 sw they pump for front and back.. I ended up with a new pump at a cost of £7.50 .
