Windscreen washer not working!

One of the windscreen washers has stopped working. The passenger side is fine so I am assuming that the pump and the pipes are okay.

Can I do anything or is it just a matter of replacing the nozzle?

It couldn't be frozen its not cold enough but it could be clogged. Is it possible to remove it and blow it out?

I think the nozzle is a heated one, does that make any difference?

The fluid is probably frozen. Give it a few days to sort itself out. I've had it freeze before when I too thought it wasn't cold enough.

I'd say frozen fluid resevoir or lines. They don't thaw out nearly as quickly as you would expect/want.
