I know it is very old post but can advise on it.Recently I have purchased my Sorento 2005 TD Tiptronic 60k
Next day after buy the screen wash flow was like nothing, so I called KIA garage to ask if there is any filtration - answer was NO and told me to buy new pump (approx 20 quid) - Bullsh*t - thre is filtration, a suction strainer (mesh) on the pump inlet which can be clogged. Cleaning off it is dead simple:
1. remove 3 off pins which areholdingthe front part of the Driver side wheel arch (plastic guard)
2 jack it down to see the back (car orientation) side of the white plastic reservoir, where you can see the electric pump
3. slack the clip on the top of the pump
3a. disconnect both pressure hoses
4. pull the pump unit toward the end of the car
5. disconnect the wiring plug (gripand pull the plug up)
6.removehe pump unit
7. use water (from tap or garden hose like I did) and pour it to the outlet ports of the pump, so it will clean any contamination of the mesh filter (on suction)
8. put it back together
9. enjoy your wind screen wash system
