Have you tried ebay?
Are you talking the 2nd position in from left, or has your screen wash push button been replaced with electric pump?

Hi cant find the washer pump and no switch for it.This switch looks like a replacement as it had a longer than usual button.It is far left and I can only guess it maybe a windscreen heater or the old spot lights.More a job for the electrician that fits the switch to work out.But yes no idea how to get the washers going as can't find anything to push so a mystery for now.Maybe another to be worked out.

Well on a late model car, the left hand position is for the washer pump button, from what you say, the chances are yours has been replaced with an electric washer.

Unlikely it's been removed, although it depends on the state of your car when you got it.

Look for the Washer Bottle, it should be under the bonnet somewhere.... :-? :-?
Has it got electric string going to a small device in the bottle or nearby on the pipe?
If it has, try connecting it to the battery momentarily and see if it makes a noise.
If it has water in it, does it squirt somewhere?
Then get a new switch, as near a match to the rest as you wish.
