Where is the rear wiper pump and motor located?
I think you probably meant you want to know where the rear screen washer pump is located?
Older vehicles usually used a rear mounted screenwash pump and reservoir that was completely separate from the front but for a decade or more most manufacturers use a common front-mounted screenwash reservoir with a long tube to supply the rear washer jet.
The pump is invariably mounted at the front, low down and close to the reservoir so as long as there is water present in the reservoir the pump will immediately provide pressure; there is limited drain-back and the pump can't be run dry.
Sometimes there is a single pump and an arrangement of valves and the pump runs in reverse to provide water for the rear and forward to wash the front screen and sometimes there are two pumps with conventional supply and tube arrangements.
