As mentioned it can be reached from above, undo the coolant expansion tank and move it to one side, no need to drain.
Top tip. If you do have to replace the pump syphon off as much washer fluid as you can as when you pull out the old pump (it's just a push fit) the fluid will p155 out everywhere.
When you come to fit the new pump remove the rubber grommet from the bottle and put it on the pump then pop it home. I left the grommet on the bottle, when I inserted the pump it pushed the grommet inside the bottle, filled it with fluid and out it all poured.
I had to remove the bottle to retrieve it.... which is not a quick job. Another one of my 5 minute jobs that took half a day.
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
