Hi Paul,

Welcome to the Jaguar Owners Club :yes:

The screenwash pumps on these cars are notoriously unreliable. If you have power, as you say, then I'd expect the pump needs replacing. There are usually some available on fleabay at a lot less than an OEM item would cost.

The headlamp wash pump is not quite the same as it is a high pressure pump which provides hydraulic pressure to move the jets as well as water to clean the lights. Again though, if you can confirm that you have power, I'd go with swapping the pump.
