Re: washer solution

There are two pumps in the fluid container, I've had them gum up. I've also had the hose in the rear hatch break and fill the hatch with washer fluid.

Re: washer solution

And sometimes the rear nozzle will clogg up, or crack, and come apart. Try disconnecting your washer lines, and blowing compressed air through them.

Re: washer solution

There is a filter above the rear hatch that can clog up.

Re: washer solution

As others have posted.... check the sprayer nozzle to see if its plugged with wax or other crud.
IF the nozzle is not the problem.....
Disconnect hose at the rear windshield washer pump to see if water comes out when the rear washer button is pressed, if not... then the problem is either the pump, the wiring or the switch....
Check wiring at the pump for voltage; if none the check the switch for voltage entering and leaving....
