Well, if you have access to a multimeter, you can unhook the switch and check resistance across it or you can leave it in the system and verify voltage is making it to the pump. This will tell you if it is the switch or the pump. The other option is to guess and replace one of them and hope you are right. If the rear screenwash is powered through the same button, then the problem is definately the pump. There may also be a relay in the system, which could also be the culprit. Your best bet is to find a wiring diagram (check out the Haynes manual from your local auto parts store) and see what is in the circuit, then trace voltage to the first component that no longer has voltage, and there is your problem. Remember, no voltage will pass the switch unless it is closed.

Where is the rear wiper pump and motor located?


I think you probably meant you want to know where the rear screen washer pump is located?

Older vehicles usually used a rear mounted screenwash pump and reservoir that was completely separate from the front but for a decade or more most manufacturers use a common front-mounted screenwash reservoir with a long tube to supply the rear washer jet.
The pump is invariably mounted at the front, low down and close to the reservoir so as long as there is water present in the reservoir the pump will immediately provide pressure; there is limited drain-back and the pump can't be run dry.

Sometimes there is a single pump and an arrangement of valves and the pump runs in reverse to provide water for the rear and forward to wash the front screen and sometimes there are two pumps with conventional supply and tube arrangements.

Rear screenwash


it uses the same resevoir and pump as the front.it will have blown appart probally because you attemted to use it when the jet was frozen...there are 2 places it blows appart in the tailgate where it connects to the motor or in the left corner in the headlining.the the wiper motor itself can also leak .see if you can find a area that is wet either around the tailgate catch or the headlinig, hope this helps cya
