There's a tee piece inside the bonnet padding - suggest you take the plastic pipe off from the passenger side nozzle and check it all the way back - it's a pain to get to, so garages will generally just blow down from the nozzle with compressed air, displace the blockage so it works for a bit then whatever was causing the blockage comes back and does it all again....... Also make sure the filter is ok on the filler cap for the washer bottle, else you get more crud in there!
