Check the water discharge nozzles are not blocked.
You may need to clear the small discharge orifice with a strand of fine wire or similar tool.
If all water delivery tubes etc are clear, perhaps the water pump is defective.
Check it's water delivery capacity is ok.

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!

2008 GMC acadia has water leaking from sunroof , how do i fin the drain hose?


The drain hoses typically run from the 4 corners of the pan around the sunroof. Usually the blockage is from the top side, so open the sunroof and clean from there. Some applications require that you drop the ceiling material for access.

How to unblock rear window wiper water pipe on I10


Firstly have someone operate the rear washer while you listen for motor operation at the front wheel well of the car (same side as the washer fluid reservoir).
If you can't hear the motor, then the motor is likely faulty and requires replacement.
You can operate the front washers to locate where both motors are. (under the car, beside the wheel well.)


If the motor is working but no water is coming out, then remove the rear washer jet and disconnect, then using a high pressure airline, blow backwards into the jet to clear out any blockage. If you don't have a high pressure airline with nozzle, then use something like the nylon filament from a yard brush to poke into the jet, to try and clear the blockage.

2004 lexus es330 has water on the passenger side floor I think that the air conditioner creates condensation and it should be going out through a tube and there may be a blockage. the problem just started.


sometimes there is a rubber tube under the hood at the back of the engine bay. this tube is coming out of the firewall. (thats the metal wall at rear of engine.this tube is short and is open at one end to drip out the condensation out. this tube get's blocked debis or insects make a nest there. you open it by sticking a small screwdriver up the opening. if it blocked and you do the solution water will come out till empty

How do you fix low pressure on windshield washer fluid sprayer.


Its just plugged up, probably right at the nozzle it's a pretty tiny hole. To clear it out you need to find a small diameter wire that will fit inside the hole to clear the blockage. Something like a small gauge sewing needle or a straight pin. It can also get plugged up in the rubber tubing. Usually you can just blow through it with lung power. Just pull the tube off at the nozzle and run the washer this will tell you if it's the nozzle or the tubing.

My washer won't spin the clothes dry


your pump in your washer is malfunctioning. no matter how much it spins if the pump doesn't work it can't remove the water. it will just flow back into the tub once it stops spinning.

Water in the passenger floorboard not antifreeze


Anytime I've encountered this, was due to the air conditioner drip tube getting blocked not allowing the water to drain out of the housing where the evaporator core is. IDEALY, the housing should be taken apart and completely cleaned but If you look at the firewall on the passenger side, you should see a small rubber tube bent at 90 degrees, round at the firewall and tapered on the other end. This can be pulled off and unplugged. Don't just put it back on once u clean it out, there is most likely still stuff blocking the drain. A small screwdriver is helpful to clear it out. I've used a hose and sprayed water, COUPLE SECONDS ONLY, into the hole to wash it out. Just repeat this and it should clear most of the junk out. The housing can hold some water so if u think the amount of water that u spray in is comparable to what comes out and is clean and clear, you can put the tube back on. Hope this was helpful,

2001 escort 55d van - windscreen washer bottle full, washer pump running but no water


Possible blockage in line or at the nozzle ends. There is a small screen that keeps debris from entering the lines but can get clogged. The screen is plastic and is inside the reservoir at the bottom between the pump and the outlet hose. Remove and clean the screen as needed. If the problem persists there is most likely a clog in the line. Slightly higher pressurized air (more than the washer pump can produce) could clear the clog. Be sure to check the nozzles for blockage too. Good luck to you

2004 Hummer H2 leaking water on passenger floor


never worked on a hummer but rule of the day is that there always is a drain on the firewall on the engine side. usually a small rubber hose about two inches long direced downward. Usually you can stick your finger in there and clear it out. Don't shove anything hard into it or you can punch a hole in the evaporator core.

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.
