The rear window washer gives you added visibility through the rear window by spraying washer fluid on it, and wiping it away. To use this feature, push the wiper lever (located on the right side of the steering column) forward, and hold it in place. The washer fluid will spray until you release the lever, at which point the wiper will wipe away the fluid.
