#2. When the pump was activated did you hear the pump running ?

Overall I'd say your pump needs replacing.

Hope your spring loaded extension arms, plastic connectors and spray heads are ok.

Yah my pump runs I can hear it clearly. I even unplugged the windshield one not to waste fluid while testing there.

So the pump itself cannot be revived? Just really need a new pump huh?

I would see everything else is good as I don't see any leaks or anything like that
