Rear window washer issue

Hi, It has been really up here in Boston these couple day. I've been noticing my rear window washer fluid not coming out when I push the lever. My front windshield and headlamp washer works fine. Can it be that the fluid hose going to the rear window is clog?? Has anyone experience this before?? If so, how did you fix it?? TIA, Sam

What washer fluid are you using? A line could be frozen, clogged, has a hole in it or the pump could be inoperable. The nozzle could be clogged or frozen as well.

I use a blue windshield washer fluid I bought at Walmart. It's rated for temperature up to -20. Where is this line located?? TIA, Sam

The $2 blue stuff freezes. Buy something like a Prestone at $4 and it'll work fine. The blue stuff is just freezing in the line. Happened to me as well. Brutal winter

Update: it was a whopping 20 degree today, know wind chill, washer fluid all working fine. I guess it was just frozen due to the wind chill these past couple days. Thanks everyone for replying, Sam

Besides just freezing and not working, frozen fluid can crack your components....
