1974 240d washer fluid control

1974 240d.

Anyone know where the control is for the washer fluid? I suspect it is not working but I don't even know what controls this.

foot pedal

To the left side of where your feet are in the car, there is probably a rubber bulb which you pump with your left foot. It pressurizes the washer fluid, and also activates the wipers. Many of them are broken and don't work any more. Mine was replaced with an electric pump which just has a switch added to the center console.
