can you hear the pump/motor buzzing/going when you try them? if yes then try clearing the washer nozzels with a pin, if no then it will require a new pump.

changing the washer pump is a fiarly easy job.

NO they both work of one pump, ie it goes one direction to work the front washers and the other direction to work the rear washer, fraid it's a new pump for you then, as said earlier it's not a bad job to do,

by the drivers wheel, you have to remove the plastic wheel arch trim at the front end not completely just enough to get your arm through in order to reach the washer bottle, the washer pump is only pushed into a rubber grommet and should just pull out with a waggle. note there may be a few different connectors for the electric plug on the pump and when removing the water pipes remember which is which, once the new pump is fitted try it before refitting the wheel arch trim.

I've been looking for one on flebay as mine has also packed up.
