Windscreen washer

The windscreen washer isn't working, the fuse (27) seems to be ok... Do I have to replace both small water pumps atrached to the water tank? Is there something I should know to solve my problem?
Thanks!!!

You shouldn't have to replace a pump that is working...but you haven't really stated that both aren't working...only the "windscreen"...which is the front windshield washer pump. Do they make any sound at all when either is activated?

Also, if you have a 2nd pump...it's probably the rear wiper/washer...does it work when you press the stalk toward the dash? If not, then it may have failed, to. And if you have headlamp washers...you'll have a 3rd pump...but you didn't mention if you have this option.

The front windscreen & rear window pumps are "twins" and sit right next to each other...the headlamp washer pump is slightly different:

Hi, my car doesn't have headlight washer. The small pumps next to the water tank don't make any sound when I activate the system. Something that is weird is that both pumps stopped working together, that's why I think they are still ok... Where the relay shown in the pic is located??
Thanks for your help!!!

You don't have a signature that includes your model/model year/build date which is important information and helps us to help you better when we need to look up information so that we can give accurate information. Sometimes there are changes that occurred during the production run from 1999-2006. Help us help you better...click the USER CP link at the top right of the page (in the blue border)...then look along the left side of the page for EDIT SIGNATURE.

But back to the wiper relay...I believe it is in the same location for all e53s...so look look in the E-box in the engine bay...it should be on the right side (passenger side since you're in the USA) its the one nearest the fender (and blue).

EDIT: oops...I see you're using the mobile app...so I'm not sure if it allows you to create a signature as I described above.
