Question about Subaru Tribeca
I'm unable to locate the fuse for the front washer.when I activate it, the wipers go but no fluid comes nor do I hear the motor 'churn'. I just bought this 2007 vehicle used and realized this issue AFTER purchase. Does anyone know which fuse runs this? Any other thoughts?
AutoZone has free repair manuals online. Should be able to find fuse locations.

I wouldn't worry about tracing the hose just yet, most likely it's a bad pump. Find the wire(s) going to the pump, usually on the bottom of the reservoir and connect a test light to a good ground. Then have someone try to 'squirt' the washer fluid while you touch the test light 'probe' to the pump's wire connector. If it lights but no fluid squirts, it's bad. They are cheap and usually very easy to replace. If it doesn't light there's a brake in the circuit somewhere. (bad fuse, bad connector, etc.) Good luck.

Rear washer may have it's own reservoir . Can you hear a pump humming when you activate the washer? Look in the under flooor compartment

the pump is located in the bottom of the washer fluid container,check to make sure all the hoses are connected first, sometimes when low on fluid the pump needs to be primed.if you need more help get back to me as i strive to be the best, Please rate my fix?

Testimonial: "Very helpful! Thanks"
Yes there are two pumps located in the wiper fluid reservoir. If your in a bind, you can switch the plugs and small hose that go to them because they are both the same. The upper pump operates the back, and the lower pump operates the front. The back won't work until it gets replaced, but it beats driving backwards.
