If you find a small puddle under the right rear of the vehicle there may be a chance that your rear windshield washer reservoir has developed a leak or if there is fluid in the reservoir but not coming out when you activate the pump you may need a new pump. Servicing or replacing the rear reservoir is quick and easy.

To access the rear washer reservoir open the access panel on the right rear of the interior.
Figure 1

To access the rear washer reservoir open the access panel on the right rear of the interior. Pull the handle (red arrow) and then fold the panel down towards the center of the vehicle.

The reservoir is located below panel on the right side.
Figure 2

The reservoir is located below panel on the right side. It sits between the metal rails and is just held in place by gravity, the rails and the panel on top. Use the handle built into the top of the reservoir (red arrow) to pull it out. If the reservoir is full use a fluid pump and remove the fluid first.

Pull the reservoir out and turn it around so you can access the pump on the rear (red arrow).

If there is fluid in the reservoir tilt it forward.

You can replace the pump by pulling it out from the rubber gasket in the reservoir (red arrow).
