A womp womp womp noise in the rear, tires are good, brakes look good, wheels are not warped, just had them balanced?
Go to a place that has a good smooth parking lot and a wooden private fence. Open all your windows and drive the car slowly as close as possible along the fence in order to pin point where the sound is coming from. The sound will echo back from the fence and will make it easier to pin point the area where the womp womp sound is coming from. Next thing you can do is lift the car up and place it on four jack stands in case you have a front wheel drive. If you have a front wheel drive and your car is on four jack stands, place you gear in nuetral and spin each rear tire separately to see which one is making the noise. Keep in mind that it might be a wheel bearing or if it a rear wheel drive and on four jack stands have someone drive it slowly while you listen for the noise. Some rear wheel drive differentials can make this noise if it is low on differial oil. Be very careful that the jack stands are on solid and making good contact with the car frame and flat on the pavement. Don't place yourself where the car can fall and hit you or run in to you. Good luck.

Probably not since there is so little alcohol in the washer fluid. Usually a little soap and some alcohol with water is all that is in the washer fluid. If it were me though I would drain and refill the system. There could be a reaction that breaks down the coolant. On German cars I have seen the coolant turn to a gel when you mix types of coolant. Best to be safe even though I believe there is little chance of a problem

Battery removed now cannot open hood
There is a pull out tab in the fuse box located in the driver foot well.
It's a red rectangular block, pull it out to expose the metal clip.
Put a battery charger or other source of + 12 volts on the clip, and the
negative end on a ground (has to be a good ground, try the bolt on the
door). then activate the hood release switch.
