I have a 98 v70 in which no fluid comes out of the rear windshield washer. Does anyone know where the pump is located? The front washer works as does the horn, since they all share the same fuse I know its still good. As well the reservoir is full. Since I donít hear the pump turn on in the rear pretty sure itís faulty. Anyway, any clues on to its location would be greatly appreciated.

I just repaired this on my '98.
It was the rear washer pump. You can find it mounted on top of the washer fluid tank.

There was also a blockage in the line and it blew the hose off where it connected in the rear cargo area. I could hear the pump working but, nothing was coming out. That is when I did some tracing and found the washer fluid pouring out into the spare wheel well.

My rear wash pump failed 3 or 4 years ago. I dropped the tank, removed the pump, disassembled it, (the gears were frozen), put it all back together and it worked fine . . for awhile. Then it froze up again.

So I took it all apart again, fixed it and it worked . . for awhile.

Don't understand why it does this, but a new one from the dealer was ~ $45 and I had better things to spend that money on.

IT's still broken . . .
