1990 Honda Civic Wagon sprayer problem

I have a 1990 Honda Civic Wagon and the rear windshield sprayer has stopped spraying. I don't know that much about cars, but I figure if there's any part of my car I can fix myself, it is this one. However, the sprayer is hidden beneath a piece of black plastic trim and I cannot figure out how to remove it without breaking it as I cannot see the attachments. Can anyone help with this?

Can you access the back of this black trim from inside the hatch?

Do you hear a washer pump sound when pressing the button?

If not, then the motor is probably shot, and thats probably mounted on the firewall.

If you hear the motor, then you probably have a clog.

No, I can't access the back of the trim from inside. It is just above the rear window and attached to the top of the hatch, covering the hinges on top.

As for the motor, I hear it.

Check your firewall area, and see if the hose for that sprayer came off. If you notice it's still on, try getting a bobby pin and try to clean the sprayer nozzles out.

I shoved the pin up as far as it would go and moved it around, but nothing came out and it still doesn't work.

Ok, if you hear the pump humming when attempting to spray, this is a good sign that there is a clog in the line. Find the washer line that goes from that defective sprayer to the washer pump. Disconnect it at the pump and take a hose, if it's not frozen from being outside, or you can use compressed air, and try and force the clog out.
