Re: Avant rear window washer
The reservoir is the same as the front. If it doesnt work its likely that the pipe has come apart at some point. Behind the passengers footwell trim is a common one. Operate it and listen for water in this area.

If you are talking about the reservoir for the radiator, the radiator pulls coolant in from the tank when it is low. If you are adding coolant - water every week and there are no external leaks, the engine is burning the coolant out the exhaust pipe. Usually a leaking head gasket - intake gasket or cracked head.
The reservoir is the same one for the front washers. There are two electric pumps on the base of the reservoir (one for front and one for rear). You probably need a new pump. It is accessible behind the panel in front of the front right wheel.
Rear washer pump is located near bottom of washer reservoir, below the left front wheel house extension and between left inner and outer fenders. Have some operate the rear washer switch while you listen in this area to find out if the the pump is running. The hose from the pump routes up along side the reservoir filler neck, into the engine compartment. Just aft of the reservoir neck an in-line connector joins the hose to the engine compartment hose. The engine compartment hose travels the top left front fender wheel house to the dash panel, passing through a grommet into the passenger compartment. In the passenger compartment, another connector joins the engine compartment hose, and then up through the front driver pillar to the headliner, then above the headliner along the left roof to the rear of the vehicle. It comes out above the lift gate, in the hinge gap, and into the lift gate to the nozzle.
Not likely to be stopped up. First find out if the pump is running, and that there's fluid in the reservoir. Look for fluid running out somewhere near the reservoir. The pump isn't running, or the hose is disconnected around the tank. Look for leaks (when running the pump, and reservoir filled) at the lift gate hinge joint.
