Probably a stupid question...Rear Windshield Wiper Fluid

Where does it go? I checked the manual and it just shows me the diagram of where to find the windshield fluid tank in the engine area. Am I missing something for the rear windshield?

I have a 2007 armada...where does the fluid go!!?? THanks!!

It all comes from the same tank so it's just the one in the engine compartment.

I figured as much but just wanted to double check...my husband's jeep wrangler had a different tank for the rear windshield wiper...i know different cars.

so if it's not spraying, it's safe to assume that it's broken huh? But then again it's been freezing here in Colorado...

I guess I should take it in...thankfully the car is still under warranty.

I think it might also depend on the fluid used. Some fluids have an antifreeze agent in them that helps but tends to dry out in the lines easier if not used for a long time. I'll be replacing my resevoir bottle because it's always had a leak in it for some reason so I'd bet my lines are all dried out right now from letting it run low over the last couple months.

Here's a rough diagram:

Keep in mind it doesn't spray, it just sort of dribbles onto the window. Reminds me of when I was in high school (too many years ago LOL!), and my buddy had a Honda station wagon. He turned the rear sprayer around so that it sprayed out horizontally. Then, if anybody was tailgating him, he'd hit the rear sprayer, and they'd get a surprise. This is back in the days before drive-by shootings, all you'd get in response was a finger or a shout!

wiper fluid

Great Question, Simple Answer. I had the same question after using alot of my rear wiper fluid to clear the window after all the wet snow we had here in kansas this winter. Great engineering on Nissans part to run a line all the way from the front of the truck to the back, and super convenient. Now the next question is...Where do we get the replacement wipers for the rear? They are'nt listed in the books at the local auto parts stores, and a generic 13 incher doesnt fit because of the shape of the wiper stalk. Any help on that one?
