How to unblock rear window wiper water pipe on I10

Firstly have someone operate the rear washer while you listen for motor operation at the front wheel well of the car (same side as the washer fluid reservoir).
If you can't hear the motor, then the motor is likely faulty and requires replacement.
You can operate the front washers to locate where both motors are. (under the car, beside the wheel well.)

If the motor is working but no water is coming out, then remove the rear washer jet and disconnect, then using a high pressure airline, blow backwards into the jet to clear out any blockage. If you don't have a high pressure airline with nozzle, then use something like the nylon filament from a yard brush to poke into the jet, to try and clear the blockage.

2003 trailblazer, rear window washer fluid not coming out. Pump sounds like working and water comes out the bottom of the rear door. how can I fix?

check the rubber hose to the jet (spray nozzle) to see that it's not torn. then check the jet to see that it is not plugged up. (has a blockage) if it's has a blockage blowing it with a blow gun and compessed air will unclog it.

Windscreen washers not operating correctly. Water comes thru the jets but at low pressure

Get yourself a small gauge/thin piece of wire. Poke the jet holes with the wire until they spray like they used to. If you have an air compressor you can also blow through the sprayer with compressed air after poking them with the wire and they should be good as new. If that doesn't work you might have a blockage in the line at the one-way valve or at the pump in the washer tank.

Try removing the plastic panel underneath/forward of the RH wheel arch, the washer bottle is there, remove the pump by pulling straight out of the bottle. There is a plug and two hoses connected to the pump. You will probably find the mesh filter is clogged, clean and try it. Some washer pumps have a valve on the side where the hoses connect, do not try to dismantle this,
