Simply replace the wiper. If that doesn't work, the wiper arm may be worn out, and doesn't have enough strength left to hold it against the window.
is it available
The rear window wiper fluid comes from the windshield wiper fluid tank in the engine compartment on a 2001 Ford Escape
If the rear window is not fully closed the rear wiper will not operate.
How do I replace the rear wiper motor or just remove the rear panel on the back window to see if my rear wiper motor is unplugged on my 2007 Subaru Outback? Thanks!
See "Rear Window Wiper and Washer Switch" on page 20 in chapter 3 "Instruments and Controls" of your "OWNER'S MANUAL".....
because it's broken

The rear window wiper arm will have a retaining clip at the bottom of the wiper arm. Hold the retaining clip in with two fingers and pull outward on the rear wiper arm.

The rear wiper blade on a Jeep Wrangler is designed to keep the window clear of rain. This helps a person see what's behind them when driving.
I have had the exact same problem with my 1990 wrangler, I found out that unless the handel that allows you to open and shut the rear window is not in the exact closed position and the window is closed tight in place, the wiper will not work but the washer will. Just for fun once I realized this I tried to turn the rear wiper on with the window open and it did not work until I shut it. Hope it works for you.
Check to make sure your rear window is not down a little bit. I could not get the rear w/s wiper or the rear window defroster to work until I lowered the rear window and then closed it again. Problem solved. Hope it works for you, too !
Read your owner's manual. This information can be found there. No its not, it just shows where the fuse box is under the engine hood. I can't read which one is for rear wiper, or rear defogger. If you are unable to use the rear wiper and defogger, it is likely due to the fact that the rear window is down ever so slightly. I fought this problem for weeks until I rolled the window down and back up. Now the defogger and wiper work!!!
Most likely, the wiper blade is shot. However, check to see if the rear arm moves freely and appears to have enough pressure towards the glass. Also make sure the wiper blade moves freely on the arm a little bit. If this all seems ok, its probably a worn, warped wiper blade and replacing it will solve the problem.
This answer varies based on year. See sources and related links below and punch in your exact make, model and year. If a rear wiper is displayed, then it takes one of 13 universally accepted rear wiper blades (which are still very hard to find in stores). If no rear wiper displays, you must go to the dealer because its a special Mercury/Ford rear wiper.
My 2003 Sienna has one tank that is for the front and rear window. You might have a problem with your pump or something else. Does your front wiper work?
Front reservoir also serves the rear
It is at the base of the rear window inside the door panel.
The drivers side wiper blade for a 2005 Subaru Forester is 22 and the passenger side wiper blade is a 19. The rear window wiper is a size 15.
No , they are a different length
The rear window wiper uses the same fluid reservoir as the front, it just has a separate rear window pump attached to the fluid bottle under the hood.
