Default Rear Wiper issues?

Hi guys,

I don't visit often but when I do, it's because I"m confounded and you guys usually have great answers!

I have an issue where the rear wiper will generally work great. swish swish when the weather is bad. However, in what appears to be a random pattern, the washer fluid will begin to flood out of the nozzle. If I turn the wiper off and on again it stops. Sometimes it will happen within minutes of turning on the wiper and other times it'll be closer to an hour before it happens.

Anyone seen this and have a suggestion on where I should start looking to fix this? It won't kill me to leave it, but it's so annoying when it does!

It may be a clogged nozzle. I had a similar thing happen on my PT but with the hood nozzles, where they would randomly dribble on the hood. Both nozzles were replaced and no problems since.
