Peugeot 307 53 reg - Rear screen washer no water - gwenrick

Rear wiper blade operates and so does pump but no water. Instead water comes out of front jets (although front wipers not moving). I am pretty sure that its not a blockage, as I have removed stop light and washer jet assembly and checked it. Curiously when hose was disconnected from jet unit, water gushed out when operated, I reconnected and washer worked for a few seconds then stopped, I checked jet was still clear but no joy. I presume there is a switching device that decides where the water is going ie front or back screen and that this is malfunctioning. Is this correct and if so where is it? (front wash wipe works normally) I hope someone can help and thanks for giving me somewhere to ask - Gwenrick

Most modern cars with front and rear screen wash have only one wash pump that reverses rotation of pump motor depending on whether front or rear wash has been selected.There is no switching device to direct the water.I would think that there is a blockage or freeze up down at the reservoir bottle and thus the water is finding the easiest escape route ie to the front jets.

thank you thats something pretty simple? that I would never have thought of in a 1000 years! I have to take the wheel and panel off to investigate, but at least I know what I'm looking for, thanks again - Rick
