Default How many window washer pumps?

I have a 2000 CRV. The rear window washer does not work. All lines are clear. I do not hear any sound when I use the switch to try to use the washer. The wipers work fine.
I fully expect to by a new pump.
My confusion is this: When I look up the pump at one of the auto parts stores, ie: O'reilly, Autozone, etc, only one pump is listed. When I look at an actual Honda parts schematic, 2 pumps are shown. One is listed a just a "pump", the other is listed at the "high pump". From the picture, it appears that the "high pump" goes to the front wiper washer. Honda shows different part numbers and prices for the 2 pumps.
So, do I have to buy from Honda and get only the "pump" for the rear washer, or will the auto parts stores pumps work for either front or rear washers?

Any clarification would be very appreciated!
Thank your

Since the part numbers and prices are different for the two pumps, they can't be the same.

Since the online price for the 'rear' pump is about $22 I'd buy the correct pump, rather than risk buying a pump that won't work.

But I'd first check fuses and inspect the pump to see if the wires have become disconnected or the connections corroded before buying a new pump.

Default washer pumps

Thanks for your quick reply. The same fuse is apparently for the wiper and washer, the wipers work and I have tested the fuse and it's fine. I plan on getting the pump locally so I can have it ready once I open the fender well to test the wiring. That way I won't have to take it apart twice. If I find it's a wire I can just return the pump unused. I just want to make sure I have the correct pump on hand.

I would still get the correct pump from Honda, the other places you checked only show one pump, and the two pumps have different part numbers, which means they are not the same.

its 2 pumps connected with a clip that holds them together. The black pump is the one for the back. any 12 volt pump will work its only a question of connections.

As long as it draws the correct amount of power so it doesn't blow fuses, is the correct size so that it fits the mounting location, has the hose and power connectors in the correct locations, and is of sufficient power to push the washer fluid to the rear of the CR-V while not being too powerful.

Much simpler to just buy the Honda replacement.

I'm off Monday on my way to the local Honda dealer to get the right pump. Thank you all for your help in getting my head wrapped around this.

you can get any aftermarkets and splice an line between, and splice the leads, and you fixed the pump.
2002 crv is o-ring any alochol mix you destroy the pumps, so if you are using any different types of liquid I stop using it, will destroy the pump in a heartbeat.

Default Washer Pump replaced.

My local Honda dealers did not have the pump, so I just went to O'Reillys and picked one up for $18.00. My Chilton's manual gave instructions on installation, which included removing the grill, bumper, etc. I took off my left front wheel and was able to remove 2 phillips head screws and 2 push in plastic retainers, then fold the inner fender back. It gave me plenty of room to remove and replace the pump. The new one works great. BTW, you can test the pump by just connecting the wires to a 9 volt battery.
Thanks for all the help.
Dan
