    No, both front and rear come from the same reservoir in the engine bay. Single pump too.

    Has the pipe become detached from the nozzle in the aerial base? (wet roof lining) or has the non-return valve malfunctioned (keep rear washer on for ages before it finally comes out)
    Do the fronts work well? Is rear nozzle blocked?

    Sounds like the filter in the bottle is blocked. If it is you need to remove the wheel arch liner and pop the pump out to clean the filter. Stealers charge about £20 for this. Have you noticed that the fronts don't work as well as they used too? not making the spray they used too?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    That's why I asked about front washer performance.

    If it's covered by warranty, then let them have a look at it

    I thought mine worked spot on until I had the filter cleaned. If it is the filter its not covered by the warranty, but if its a good dealer they will do it FOC.

    expensive fuse. But if you knew a fuse had gone, why take it to VX?? why not just replace the fuse?
