The jet is probably blocked. Remove the pipe from the jets and see if water comes from the pipe. If it does, blow the jets free using compressed air, normally you can use the local garage tyre inflater, or a friendly repair garage will give them a squirt for free.
If water doesn't come through when you test, then the pipe may be blocked or even split. If blocked you can take it off and blow free using your mouth, and if split just replace.

The rear wiper motor is separate from the front one. That is right behind the back door panel at pivot point. Your wiper motor and pump for your front washer fluid is under the grill below your pivot points on the front wipers.

I have not seen a remote filter for these they are usually on the motor itself. Take the hose loose from the pump and see if it is actually pumping out water or is it just running. If it is pumping pretty strong trace the rubber tube up to the wipers and make sure there is no breaks in it anywhere.

Rear wiper and washer of BMW 5 E39 not working


I had the same problem. I thought it was an issue with a blown fuse, but also noticed that the rear wiper was very stiff.
I solved it by opening the rear window (so the wiper is not clicked into the motor) then squirt some WD40 into the wiper mechanism (I put the oil in from the outside). Gently move the wiper from side to side until it starts to free up - after a couple of movements the wiper should be moving freely again. No issues since.

At the same time, check that the washer jet is correctly angled. Mine was squirting directly into the wiper which may have caused it to rust up a bit.

Hyundai Accent 1998 Front Wiper and Washer Won't Turn Off


the black switches are master switches. They control stuff like the horn, the lights, wipers, AC, Engine Fans, and....there's one more that it controls, but i dont remember what it is. But you're going the wrong way about this. You're on the wrong side of the engine. You want to be on the opposite side of the engine, along the firewall, close to the front shocks by the windshield wiper motor. That's more than likely your problem. A little bit of water, grease, or some dirt might have slipped past the seal and caused a malfunction in the control wheel. Just open it up, clean it out, add some grease to the appropriate area, blow dry the circut board, stitch it back up, and that should solve the problem.
Please keep in mind that my American Car is a sligh bit different than your Australian Car. If the directions don't match up, i'm sorry for the inconvenience.

~Hope this helps

I have a1992 ford explorer the front and rear wipers quit workin


check for power at the wiper motor. If power at the wiper motor but no wiper action then replace the motor. if no power at the motor then use a jumper wire and put power to the motor. Does motor run? if so check for open circuit in the wire someplace.
