Location of Rear Window Washer Fluid Tank, 2001 Jeep Cherokee
I know where the front washer fluid tank is on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee, it's inside the left wheel well, but I can't locate the washer fluid tank for the rear window. Is there a seperate tank and if so where is it located?

The same tank that holds the front wiper washer fluid holds the rear. If your rear washer is not working, it could be one of 2 things.....
1- your washer fluid tank is low. Most car manufacturers design the tank so the rear washers stop getting fluid first to remind you to fill the tank.
2- there is a clog in your rear washer system or the pump is not working. Your problem sounds like your pump is working, so first top off your washer fluid tank, then if after about 30 seconds of trying (it takes a while to get back there), try to first unplug the rear washer by scrubbing with a toothbrush and hot water. Next, follow the hose to see if it is pinched somewhere or broken.
open the coolant overflow tank under the hood. if fluid is the same color, you have a coolant leak somewhere towards the front which is running along something and dripping off at the back.
if not the same color then open your washer tank and check that fluid for color match. if the same then your washer system has a leak, could be front or rear if it has rear washer
You may have a line disconnected or the tank may be emply? Are all lines connected at the rear blade? I believe the fluid comes from the front tank under the hood. Check the lines from the tank.
Also check the pump. Can you hear the pump when using rear wiper/washer?
it uses one washer fluid tank in the engine area that provide fluid for front/rear windows.
you could pull the rubber hose off at the bottom as a first check to ensure the washer pump does function to shoot fluid from the washer fluid tank.
if there's fluid still in it, look inside to ensure no forgein/gunk object is plugging the bottom inside.
check the washer fluid tank in the engine area and see if the rubber hose is still connected to it?
also check for no kinked or pinched point along the hose...just follow the hose to see it's not compressed flat which could be the cause of restricted washer fluid movement.
1 check washer fluid level (obviously!) 2 ensure the tips that spray aren't frozen 3 check the fuse 4 check the pump(have someone activate the switch (key on engine off) and listen under the hood for a buzzing or whirring sound near washer fluid tank)
There are two separate washer pumps underneith the washer res. behind the front driver quarter panel. The exact pumps are hard to find. I have the same prob with my 99, but both are out. I had a 98 that the front worked but not rear. I had to get a "universal" washer pump. I'm still trying to find a factory replacement for this one before I do that. No luck so far.
