How do I remove the rear washer reservoir on a 2001 Ford Taurus Wagon

it is tucked behind the panels. remove panels slowly and see how they slip or pop off. Once that is off, its 3 bolts IIRC 10mm bolts. Then there is one connector for fluid pump and rubber hose.
Simple to do.

I need to know where to put the fluid for the rear wipers.

The same tank that holds the front wiper washer fluid holds the rear. If your rear washer is not working, it could be one of 2 things.....

1- your washer fluid tank is low. Most car manufacturers design the tank so the rear washers stop getting fluid first to remind you to fill the tank.

2- there is a clog in your rear washer system or the pump is not working. Your problem sounds like your pump is working, so first top off your washer fluid tank, then if after about 30 seconds of trying (it takes a while to get back there), try to first unplug the rear washer by scrubbing with a toothbrush and hot water. Next, follow the hose to see if it is pinched somewhere or broken.

Rear window washers working

I have a 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser. I could hear the washer pump working but no fluid was coming out. We blew the lines with an air compressor and air came through all nozzles, that did not solve the problem. Long story short, we discovered the turbine in the pump was foaming up the fluid that was in the tank. We emptied the fluid (possibly bad batch of fluid) put straight water in the tank and the washers are now working fine. Unfortunately we dont know when the fluid was filled last or the batch number, we only know that it was the blue. I will buy new fluid tomorrow. It is unfortunate that a 1.99 bottle of fluid could cause so much problems and expenses for some. Hope this helps someone.

Location of Rear Window Washer Fluid Tank, 2001 Jeep Cherokee

It is the same tank, and the tank should have two pumps on it, one for front and one for rear.

1999 Jeep Cherokee rear window washer

There are two separate washer pumps underneith the washer res. behind the front driver quarter panel. The exact pumps are hard to find. I have the same prob with my 99, but both are out. I had a 98 that the front worked but not rear. I had to get a "universal" washer pump. I'm still trying to find a factory replacement for this one before I do that. No luck so far.
