About a week ago rear washer stopped working. When I switched it on I heard sound of water running somewhere in the rear part of the car.
So...

Step 1.
Remove:
- top trim panel
- right D-pillar trim panel
- upper-right part of rear right quarter trim panel (no need to remove the whole panel)

Step 2.
Pull the quarter trim panel slightly and look inside. It is clearly visible that the hose is split.

Step 3.
With the tip of a knife open that little thing on D-pillar that holds the hose.

Step 4.
Pull both parts of hose out and connect them. I used duct tape to strengthen the connection.

Step 5.
Close the liftgate and check that everything works properly.

Step 6.
Put everything back together.

Took me about 15 minutes.
