Default '12 WRX Rear Windshield sprayer not working

Hey guys, like the title says, I'm not getting fluid onto my rear windshield. The pump works(can audibly hear it run). Wondering if anyone knows of the location of the pump and how the lines run to the rear nozzle. Looked around and couldn't find any good images since I'm not 100% on what it looks like.

I did have my rear seat out and fairly certain I found the hose for the rear(clear tube that had condensation in it and blue fluid(washer fluid but just mist). Looks like a clog between the pump and the rear seat, just not sure how it runs and how to expose it to check.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks guys and gals!

The front and the rear pumps are attached to the washer-fluid reservoir that is under the hood/bumper-cover.

The line runs up along the body inside the vehicle and crosses over and then up to the roof-line.

You could remove the hose from the pump and use compressed air to dislodge any blockage, should this be the case. It is also possible that the line is broken or has become disconnected from a connector-tube (that joins two hoses together).

Also, there may be an inline valve that is a one-way valve. It is designed to allow the fluid to travel to the nozzle, but not back into the tank. This is so there is almost no 'downtime' between when you press the button and the fluid begins to exit the nozzle.

Thanks for the info, I'm going to see if I can get to it tomorrow and try the air hose trick or visual inspection.
