Question 95 wagon rear washer reservoir location

Ok, stupid question... The dealer didn't give me the owners manual and I tried looking for it. My 91 had it in the cubby, but its not there.

I though it was a seperate line fed from the reservoir up front, but I have fluid up front, just not in the back It has been REAL cold lately, but today was above 30* when I got in the car this morning.

Is there a seperate reservoir like my 91 had? Where is it?

TIA

yes, something could be frozen...
but...

dont you have a rear/separate motor to run that wiper?
is it running when you turn on the spray?

hole plugged, air in the line.... etc...
that's gotta be your issue there...

see if that helps...

Also some weird creatures will feed off washer fluid so it may be gunked up.

I had some crazy looking stuff growing in mine once

The pump for the rear is well above the pump for the fronts, so it stops spraying well before the front does. Try topping off the reservoir. If that doesn't work, the lines probably plugged, somewhere.

the problem is your front still works and your back doesnt is because the pump for the rear is mounted higher than the pump for the front. therfore at certain levels the fluid is below the rear pump yet still above the front pump.

Ok, for being a 'car guy' and techincally/mechanically inclined I feel real dumb

I didn't know/realize the pickup for the rear was above the front, and a fresh gal of fluid fixed my problem

I'll be back to doing camswaps and other work on my Impala, its easier
