Rear Hatch Washer Fluid nozzle performance

Curious how the rear washer nozzle is performing for people. I have a 2015 3 hatch.

I always forget to ask but whenever i use it the system kind of makes a whining noise and dribbles fluid onto the rear glass. I have to use several applications because it just runs down the window before the wiper can really get any work done.

I usually have the best luck but turning the rear wiper on full and then tapping the washer actuator a few times mid wipe to get a good cleaning.

Is this normal? I did some searching and found a similiar problem on the previous gen, no idea if this is normal or not for the latest car.

Sounds about right

Dribbles fluid onto the window and the wiper itself kind of spreads / smears it around, then a couple of wipes after the spraying is done and it's all clean (or as clean as it'll get)

On my '16 HB GS it's a bit disappointing. Not enough pressure on the blade it seems and yes, the fluid just trickles out.

I get a good amount of fluid flow, but the wiper blade is only adequate at doing its job.

That's exactly how it works for me as well. Perfectly explained
