where to add washer fluid for rear wiper/window?

Where is the rear wiper fluid resovoir located? Is it in the rear or share the front one? I ask because the front sprayers work but the rear doesn't & I didn't see any resovoir in the rear.

Thanks.

There is a common (shared) reservoir for the fluid. The spray nozzle at the rear could be blocked or clogged. Find a real fine strand of wire and open the hole. Don't be to aggressive when opening the hole, you could affect the spray pattern.

when I first got my expy the washer fluid hose for the rear had come off the nozzle, so when I hit it nothing would happen at first, but if I left it going for a while eventually fluid would start coming out the edge of the headliner. I had to drop the headliner in the rear and reattach the line. Have someone sit in the rear while you run the rear washer and see if they can hear fluid trickling anywhere.

When I bought my 04 it had this issue. Turns out it was the relay that decided which direction to turn the motor depending on whether it was sending the fluid for or aft. They did this repair for free at the dealership though before I got it, so I can't say much better.

When I bought my 2001 back from my ex, mine didn't work either. Found a joint behind the right front kick panel that had come loose. Hooked that back up, tried it, and it started raining fluid from the rear of the headliner trim and the rear dome light housing. Found that joint, hooked it up, been fine since.

If that is the problem, I suggest using small hose clamps or zip-ties, cinched down TIGHT, to keep them from coming apart again. I used zip-ties, because that's what I had on hand.
