That sounds terrible, better get that inside panel off on the tailgate and check that out. Could be the motor, or the mechanism its attached to.

sounds funky it still works though. To use the rear washer fluid push the right stalk forward.

Valeo is the oem manufacturer for the rear wiper motor btw.

The whole thing is one piece right? Will a 1999 fit a 2003?

Replace the motor

That sounds familiar! I replaced my rear wiper motor to fix that same sound about 6 months ago. Everything's working OK again. Keep the old plastic molding that sits around the wiper motor stem. I had to reuse the old molding because the new one didn't match the profile of the exterior. The job took no more than a couple of hours.

Make sure you pick up some new Panel clips to replace the ones that are likely going to snap when you ease off the rear plastic panel. I bought these https://www.amazon.com/Lantee-Pieces...9984369&sr=8-4 off Amazon but I'm guessing you can get them in your local auto store.

Good luck.

Should be up front on the washer reservoir.

So if my front windshield sprays but my rear doesn't - then it is a hose or nozzle issue?

Could be. I'm really not totally sure, but believe there are 2 little pumps on the reservoir.

I believe there are two separate washer pumps. One for the front, and one for the rear, but they are both up front on the same reservoir inside the LF wheel well.

open the hood, turn the key on, but dont start it. lean forward as far as you can, between the door and the door frame. push the washer stalk and listen for the pump. if it runs, you'll hear it. if you hear nothing, squirt the front one, just so you'll know what you're listening for. if the back pump runs, look for a leak, or a clogged nozzle.
