Before I go dig around under the hood and if some of you guys are bumming around at work looking for something to type in how about giving me a few suggestions on where to look.. My washer fluid isnt squirting out.. Im not even hearing a wirrr noise or anything.. is there a fuse for this? Whats a new pump motor run if it turns out to be dead? Anywhere else I want to look? Im stuck at work now, so i guess im just trying to get a "feel" for what im gunna look for before I go home tonight.. since this board is so great at suggestions too :)

Check connector on pump. Have someone pull the washer pump lever while you lay your hand on the pump, see if you can feel it trying to turn. I can't remember if there's a fuse for it or not, but worth a look. My Bentley is in the trunk of the 525.

Sometimes, the pump can ingest some dirt/debris, and can cause it to stall. New pump cost me around $35 last year from Bavarian Autosport.
