Hi All....So my rear wiper fluid wouldn't come out, no matter what I tried....brought the Renny for it's oil change and they looked at it, they had to remove panels etc to find that they had not hooked it up tightly at the factory and it came loose. So they got it reconnected.

I'd read some others were having issues where they had issues too, so hope this helps someone else.

It worked for about 4 months, then stopped.

Still loving my Renny! :ReneBlueWave:

My front left washer hose became disconnected about a week after I got it. Just needed to be pushed on all the way......

washer pump lost power (check fuse and check if the pump got power)
washer pump kicked the bucket (listen for the pump's noise)
hose fell off the pump or off the squirter (visual confirmation)
clogged nozzles (clean with a thin brass or copper wire or similar - no hard metal to avoid damage to the squirter)

How is the rear wiper blade replaced?
Also can the spray pattern be adjusted to the area needing wiped? Mine does not spray a useful pattern anywhere near the path of the rear wiper.

I have the exact same problem! Anyone know if/how it can be adjusted?

Just curious, but where was all the fluid ending up in the previous 4 months.? Hopefully just running out onto the street.

I'll check mine this weekend just before wash/wax.

My wife has a 2018 renegade latitude and the rear windshield sprayer has stopped working as well. Front still sprays. I made sure the tank was full and held down the rear sprayer switch. I could smell washer fluid and heat fluid hitting the ground directly under the drivers side firewall. Seems like the tube may have come disconnected. Have to start chasing the pump and the disconnected tube down now. Anyone dealt with this personally to point me in the right direction?
