There are two separate reservoirs. One for the intensive headlight wash. One for the windshield.

I think.

Correct, there are two reservoirs. The windshield one is next to the shock tower.

Could the nozzles be clogged, maybe post waxing?

a small push-pin should be small enough to open up the holes.

Just had the pump go bad on mine

Just had the pump go bad on mine. Do you hear any buzzing when you activate the sprayer? If not pump may be bad, about $40.
