Unhappy Rear window sprayer leak?

So, my Foz is pissing all over itself. Seriously. On relatively hard acceleration the rear window sprayer leaks washer fluid down the back of the car. Any explanations? It's just frustrating because I can't keep the damn thing clean. Not to mention wasting washer fluid. Do I just need to replace the actual nozzle above the window? Anyone else had this problem?

More than likely it's the check valve inside the sprayer motor in the bottom of the reservoir.
Either there's dirt/debris holding it open, or it's just plain stuck.
Try filling the reservoir with hot water & running it through the rear sprayer.

Wow. I hadn't checked the site for quite a while. Glad to see this thread pop back up and with a solution to boot!
