The pumps can be pulled out without removing the washer bottle. I'm getting pretty good at this job on bottles now having done both my 9000's bottle splits, one of them twice because the epoxy resin cracked. FWIW, it's probably worth having a very good inspection of the rear bottle support rod where the bottle meets the rod as this is a major cause of splitting. Last time I fixed mine, I melted it together with a soldering iron (15W) and then reinforced the lot with glass fibre matting.

You may have blocked nozzles, try removing the supply pipe to the wiper. David.
