Where is the reservoir for the rear window wiper fluid located? Is there only one container under the hood or is there another for the rear?

Asked by Jan 13, 2007 at 08:14 PM about the 2002 Toyota RAV4 Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I operate the rear window wiper, the wipers sweep but no washer fluid comes out.  The washer fluid reservoir under the hood is full.  The front windshield wipers wash just fine.  Is there a separate fluid reservoir for the rear window wiper?

Hi Wesietr ... I could not find any evidense there's a second reservoir on your RAV but I did find that when you look for a replacement washer fluid pump it notes that the part will replace both the front and rear pumps. I'm guessing that's where your problem is(or of course, less likely, the supply line). I believe the pump is inexpensive (less than $15) and a quick trip to your local library or book store to check out the Chilton's manual for your RAV will tell you if it's a job you should be willing to take on. Good luck!

Thank you LouB.

There's no second resevoir. I would also recommend clearing the nozzle on the back of the vehicle, mine has been clogged by ice in the past.
