You will find once you get in there you can remove the pump from the washer bottle without removing the washer bottle.

Well this is a very easy fix to get to. Other than putting in the new pump and it still not working IDK what else to do. Knowing my luck it was defective and I will have to do it all over again. I got a replacement coming. Any other ideas why it wouldn't work?

Most of my windshield washer issues have been broken lines from storage tank to sprayer.

Check to see if you are getting 12V to the vehicle side connector when the pump is activated.

You have to remove the whole reservoir to access the pump. Upon removing it make sure to carefully to pry the pump don't damage the seal.

This thread was my inspiration to finally fix my pump that has been broken for years. Thanks guys.

Now here is the part where you hate me. My pump is in open view, and the hard part doing it as quick as possible to minimize fluid loss, and trying not to break the landmine of a 20 year old air line right running off my ELC pump, right next to it.

Long live old school C-Bodies!

Well it is not the pump as the replacement for the replacement isn't working. It must be the electrical plug or line. I have to buy a voltage tester and test the metal plugs. The fluid level sensor is working as now it tells me in low every time I start the car. Those wires looked to be tapped together. Any ideas on what the issue could be? If it'* a bad plug any ideas on a fix?

No you don't. On that generation of Bonneville you remove the front right wheel liner and the pump is staring you in the face. Very easy to change without pulling the washer bottle.
