Question about Volvo XC70
Most washer solvent bottles share a common resevoir. The rear washer pump is located above the front pump. Try filling resevoir completely. If this does not solve the problem, listen for pump howling when you engage it. If it engages & howls & still wont work, possibly rear nozzle is plugged. Disconnect hose to it. If you engage it & it squirts, nozzle is plugged. Try blowing through it with air hose or pick it out with a fine pick. If no noise or fluid either way pump will need to be replaced.

the same reservoir is used for both ...it uses separate pump motors.....if the wipers are working the fuse for the washer pump is good...check the power and ground for the pump...

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.

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

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.
