W115 - Radio + Washer Questions

I have a '76 300D and ive run into a couple of minor problems in the last couple weeks.

My radio is no longer getting any power. I tested the power connector with a voltage meter and was getting 0 flat. I changed the fuses but that didn't do anything. I haven't taken the whole console off and was hoping to avoid that. Any advice?


My windshield washer system ( that small pump by the parking brake) isn't working. Anyone have a diagram of it? I have the line coming from the reservoir in the right connector, but it is just "spitting" out onto the hood.

That is strange. Are there any other accessories not working?

It's possible that the nozzles are dirty and crusty. At last I recall using a needle and scraping out the crud and old polishing wax that has accumulated in the washer nozzle holes.

All other things are working well, i have no idea what the problem is.

But as far as the washer system, there is a clog in one of the tubes, there all stock so im going to replace them.
