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.

Replace pipe for rear windo woshre

Replacing the rear screenwash pipe or hose is problematic and requires extensive work and mostly isn't necessary as usually it fails only where the pipe jumps from body to tailgate and is subject to excessive twisting and pinching forces so that when polythene pipe is used which age hardens it soon cracks or breaks.

Mostly it is possible to graft in a section of hose, often without needing to disturb the headlining. It is best if some old-fashioned black rubber screenwash hose is found for the purpose as it doesn't harden and is very flexible.
The skills needed are reminiscent of those used by a gynaecologist but with patience and small hose joiners a workmanlike job can be made and finished with a spray of silicone grease before refitting the rubber boot.

My rear differential is broken and i would like to engage my front wheels so i can just drive with them. the car is headed for the junk yard im just trying to get a few more weeks out of it. it has smart...

what you are describing can't be done-unless-no -the rear drive shaft will still drive the rear wheels-smart track ain't so smart. you could drop the rear drive shaft out but then you'd leak trany fluid all out the tailshaft-why not pick up rear end at the junkyard and install-cheers Denny

My 2000 dodge Durango is making a loud humming noise. When you go over 20mph. It feels like it is under my feet when I am driving and my steering wheel is vibrating. Any ideas what it nay be.

Check the front tyres for hi / low spots, flat spots, bulges. Try rotateing your wheels front to rear & see if the steering vibration disapears & noise move to rear.

If the noise is coming from the rear with rear A/C it sounds like you have a mode door actuator bad, same if noise is coming from front in dash. Have seen this before. In the rear you will have to remove pass. rear cargo area side panel, you have 2 actuators back there just feel which one is making noise, one on top is mode door and one on side of A/C case is temp. door. Hope this helps.

Hyundai Coupe V6 windscreen washer not working

It sounds as if there is a blockage either in the base of the screenwash reservoir or the feed pipe from the reservoir. You could remove the screenwash reservoir tank and clean it out and at the same time check the pipe.

Hello, i have a ford focus 2002 uk model and the front screenwash button has stopped working - could be the button itself or the pump. the rear sreenwash works fine. please help.

Well, if you have access to a multimeter, you can unhook the switch and check resistance across it or you can leave it in the system and verify voltage is making it to the pump. This will tell you if it is the switch or the pump. The other option is to guess and replace one of them and hope you are right. If the rear screenwash is powered through the same button, then the problem is definately the pump. There may also be a relay in the system, which could also be the culprit. Your best bet is to find a wiring diagram (check out the Haynes manual from your local auto parts store) and see what is in the circuit, then trace voltage to the first component that no longer has voltage, and there is your problem. Remember, no voltage will pass the switch unless it is closed.
