2005 bmw x3 3.0 - My rear window washer is not emitting solution

Hello to all you bimmerfest BMW lovers,

I need a bit of help. My rear window washer is not emitting solution when I press the waher button. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. The washer fluid holder under the hood is completely full.

Possibilities:

1. the pump for the rear washer has a corroded electrical connector

2. the pump for the rear washer is dead and needs replacing (most likely)

3. the pump is fine but the rear nozzle is blocked or its tubing has separated (normally indicated by a wet patch somewhere)

4. the stalk on the steering column is not working properly

Diagnose #2 by simply swapping the connectors on the two (side-by-side) pumps. Front washer should then be dead and rear works.
