Anyone know if there is a separate reservoir for the rear washer jets on a wagon? Trying to figured out why mine aren't working and just hope the tank is empty

I don't think it's gone as I can hear it working, where is the res located?

That is something I cannot help with, I would think if you don't know where it is, there is a good chance its empty..

I can look at my manual, but I am sure someone else here will find the info first.

Cool, thanks guys. I was wrong.. I was confusing this with the little probe, it had a separate washer bottle in the a** of the car for the rear window.

Odds are the pump for the rear jet is cactus. Or it just might be the tube may be blocked. From memory there is a crappy little plastic mesh filter on the pump, these disintegrate over time and block them up. Both of the pumps are identical to the normal sedan ones, so are not too difficult to source.
