Wiper runs upside down. Instead of clearing window clears below.

My odyssey rear wiper runs backwards. It does not clean the window but cleans the lower area where the license plate and brake lights are located.

I turned on the wipers while windshield was iced and they did not work due to ice.

From your description of events, chances are, your wiper motor burned out, or the gears stripped, either way you're most likely looking at a new wiper motor. Blades frozen to the windshield, or trying to clear deep or heavy snow with wipers put a lot of strain on the motor and will very often cause it to burn out. The upside is if you are confident enough to try it yourself, most wiper motors are relatively easy to replace, and depending on your vehicle, it shouldn't be a horribly expensive part to purchase. Hope this helps, Good Luck :)

On my 1995 Honda Odyssey, the rear windshield washer just dribbles fluid onto the window, and it takes about 10 seconds of pumping before the dribble appears on the glass, then another 10-15 seconds of...

The nozzle should be visible and it should spray onto the glass in a jet, normally straight down. Find the hole, they are stainless steel or brass and clean it with a pin. The pump is part of the reservoir.

Rear Windshield Wiper

Richard there should be a 12mm nut at the base of the wiper arm. Pull up on a cover to expose it. Position the wiper where it should be for the rest position, Then tighten the nut and try it again.

Yes, that putty would need removing, clean with a wire brush and spray with penetrating oil.

There are usually videos on removing and replacing such items, but i can only find text based advice. You are not the only one to have trouble.

Odyssey Rear Wiper upside down

The rear wiper should be able to come off from the rear. What do uyou mean "upside down?" at the pivot end there should be a nut, take it loose and adjust the arm.

2000 Honda Odyssey rear wiper motor replacement

You are probably correct in thinking its the wiper motor. You can do this but you will need to remove all the interior trim from the rear hatch first. Get a trim clip removal tool at a parts will work much better than just a flat blade screwdriver. You'll have to remove the trim panels starting in order from the top of the door, then the left rear window side trim, then right rear window side trim, then the grab handle, and finally the main rear hatch trim panel. Once inside, removing and replacing the rear wiper motor is easy. You'll start by lifting the cover on the wiper arm retention nut. Remove this nut to get the wiper arm off, then remove the nut under neath which is the motor shaft mounting nut. Now, back inside to remove the other 3 motor mounting bolts. Don't forget to disconnect the connector for the motor wires. Reverse steps to replace.

1996 Honda Civic Wiper Spray problems

You will not be able to tell whether the spray nozzle is clean just by looking at it.
Poke it with a fine needle and keep trying to spray. If it is blacked,it will soon clear up.
I take it you can hear the spray motor running when you depress the switch.
