It is the same tank, and the tank should have two pumps on it, one for front and one for rear.

SOURCE: 1999 Jeep Cherokee rear window washer

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.

SOURCE: rear windshield washer works but front does

Probably need to replace the pump. Separate pumps for front and rear. Check with a test light to see if there is power to the pump. If it has power but won't work, replace the pump. If no power, you have a wiring issue. Be sure to turn the switch on and have someone push the washer button when you are checking for power. There won't be any until you push it to "wash".

Where is the rear windshield washer reservoir on my 2006 Subaru forester


Hello, The washer reservoir for the rear is the same as the one for the front. It has two small fluid pumps on the bottom of the reservoir, one for the front and one for the rear. If your rear washer isn't spraying, I would suspect there is a clog somewhere in the wash fluid tube leading back to the nozzle. If you have an air supply with a small tipped air blower, you can usually put a small amount of air through the line to see if it clears. I would advise to gain access to the rear washer tube and disconnect it and introduce the air at that location. Just figured I'd add that bit of diagnosis in case that was your problem. Hope this info helps!

Windshield washer fluid only working on passenger side


nozzle stopped up with wax, or tubing is stopped up, pump motor may be running, but pump isn't. Check for pressure at the pumps. Tubing sometimes comes off or has cracks that let washer fluid escape. Its sounds like a search till you find it type thing. Can't be too much, either a blown fuse, faulty pump/motor, or faulty tubing/clogged nozzle

Where is the rear windshield fluid reservoir located on a 1994 Toyota Camry Station Wagon?


not 100% on this, but typically, you have to open the back hatch, and there will be a small rubber cap over the opening for the washer fluid located on or near the top of one of the taillight lenses on either side of the vehicle.

2003 chevy tahoe no rear heat


I know the earlier tahoe's have two heater lines running from the engine compartment to the rear under the vechile. Those lines could be clogged or pinched shut. What you do is get two hose locking pliers. Go under your truck, they are two metal lines that turn into rubber and back into metal again farther down the line. First, checked for pinched lines. If none, find where the rubber hoses are, clamp them off, remove from metal lines and drain. Use garden hose to flush fresh water through. When water comes through at high pressure and pretty clear, it should be done. Reconnect hoses, top off radiator fluid and it should be fine.

2002 vw golf rear windshield washer


the washer pipe will have blown appart.this happens if you opperate the rear washer when it is frozen.it will either be off in the tailgate usually when this happens there is water around the catch when you open the tailgate.or in the headlining in the left rear,have a feel and see if the headlining is wet.to avoid this reoccuring use a good screenwash with frost protection.

Wiper washer


You didn't mention any lost fluids so we can assume that no hapless mechanic has accidentally pulled any tubing loose from the supply. 
If, as in many cars, the path of the tubing connecting the washer fluid bottle to the jets on the cowl are visible, carefully pull one the tubes loose and have someone operate the washer to see if the pump is doing anything any more. You may be able to find the 'Y' junction where the tubes split off to feed the two jets.
The rear window washer has its own fluid supply and pump so is completely independent of the front.
If you find the pump working, then you will have to carefully poke a soft, small gauge wire, preferably copper, to try to clean the jets themselves. You probably have some small bits of something clogging the jets and it can help if someone is keeping the washer pump running while you try to clear them as the pressure will aid you.     
Worst case, the jets can often be replaced fairly easy and at a cost of a few dollars.
