Rear Window Washer Fluid Not Working

As of recent I no longer have any fluid reaching the rear window. At first I thought it might be because the unit in the back was clogged with road grim due to snowboarding trip. However after getting it back in the city and power washing her clean, there was still not a drop. When I pump it in the cab I can hear the pump working.

So is a hose disconnected somewhere or what could cause this?

Further, I understand, thanks to the forums, that the washer fluid unit/pump etc is in the wheel well of the driver side? How do I gain access to see all this?

Jack it up and pull the wheel and look under there, the pumps are attached to the bottle itself, one for the front and one for the rear. If you hear the pump, then you may have a leak, check for fluid leaking somewhere around the vehicle, then try to follow it to the source.

You can also try and disconnect the hose and blow through it in case it is clogged, be sure to do it only on the hose that's runs to the rear otherwise you could blow out the membranes in the "y"connectors. Check that out and report back if it doesn't work.
