Just after the washer pump is an inline filter. Mine is blocked. Looked on SJ's website but can't see one. Has anyone replaced this if so what with?

Thanks for the replies everyone. I will have a look on ebay. Like the idea of having one under the bonnet near the jets.

The SB refers to the Introduction of the S2 when it was supposed to be moved to under the bonnet to stop it dribbling under hard braking. The service bulletins are in the manuals section
