Replacing windshield washer pump?

Is this a big pain to change out? Headlight washer works fine but windsield washer pump is dead. Just picked up the car so I assume it's been dead awhile. Looked at the dash fuse chart and there's just a single fuse for the windshield system so I assume there's no other fuses (haven't checked the trunk fuses, but it would seem strange to have it fused there)
Any tips or shortcuts are apreciated and yes, it's out of warranty
Thanks!

easiest thing to do, u can access it either from the hood, or on ramps its under the front of the car (driver side) both pumps can be pulled out by hand, 1 has a hose under neath that need to be disconnected.

Mine started leaking a month ago, dealer wanted $300+ to replace the pump, I said no and planned to fix myself but I'm having lots of trouble "pulling" out the pump with nose pliers, I fear I'll damage the connector, anybody else had this trouble? I'm going to remove the tank from below and go at it that way.

Talking 745 E65 E 66 Winshield Washer Pump

My washer pump wasn't working also. I just fixed it and here are a couple of items
that may make it easier for a DIYer:

1. There are 2 pumps, one for the Headlights and one for the Windshield. Both are attached to the white opaque plastic resevoir which is under the black plastic cover in the drivers front corner under the hood.

2. Simply remove the top corner black cover by turning the 2 retaining clips and lifting off. You will see the two wires and connectors connecting the 2 pumps to the resevoir below. The one on the left is the Headlight pump, and the one on the right (which sits lower) is the Windshield pump. (I was originally confused on this because the schematic diagram from realoem.com showed the pumps reversed in error).

3. To remove the windshield washer pump, just pull straight up. (Remember this is the lower one) You can do this before or after unclipping the wire connector. The pump has a black rubber grommet and strainer that sits straight down in a small hole on the side of the plastic resevoir.

4. First check the grommet/strainer to see if it is clogged. Mine was and I probably could have cleaned it, but I installed the new one the cost me $4.50. The pump was working fine and I did not replace it. If you do need to replace it, just disconnect the line and reconnect to the new one.

5. Push the pump and grommet/strainer back in to postion and reconnect the wire connector and you're in business.
