My DW drives this vehicle and informed me that no fluid is coming out of the rear windshield wiper. I got out the manual to check myself and sure enough when you turn the toggle counterclockwise you can hear the motor pump but no fluid is emerging. I checked the reservoir for windshield wiper fluid and it is virtually full. I am making the assumption that the same reservoir is used for both front and rear windshield wipers.

If that is correct does that mean that a tube runs to the back of the vehicle above the rear window. How does one trouble shoot this if fluid is not emerging in the back window.

Is my assumption wrong and there is a second wiper. Anyone have any experience with this problem.
