Question about Hyundai Tiburon
It's probably your washer motor, it's fitted to the washer bottle below where you fill it up under the inner wing.
The best way to get to it is to remove the wheel and wheelarch liner as you will have better access and can see what you're doing, a quick test is to swap the plug from the windscreen onto the rear washer pump (both pumps are in the same bottle), the hoses should be colour coded and I think the front one has a black pipe.
Then try the switch again, if the back washer works from the front wash wipe switch, presuming it worked before and wasn't blocked then you know it's the motor, you can then either swap the pipes around and fix the rear one at a later date or get a replacement. (hot water will help slide the pipes on and off)
These are, if I remember correctly expensive from the dealer but a breakers should have one at reasonable cost - or ebay.
If the above doesn't work and the wire to the pump is undamaged then it's most likely to be the switch itself, I've not had to change one personally but have replaced a couple of motors on these.
Hope this helps

Rear washer may have it's own reservoir . Can you hear a pump humming when you activate the washer? Look in the under flooor compartment
