I was first told I must have hit something and broke it, which I did not. Dealer replaced windshield washer mech. free of charge, since still under warranty.

Small impact to front RHS bumper resulted in windscreen washers not working - first thought it was the radiator. From previous reports looks like a new washer motor. It was a very slight impact.
