I can hear the pump working but no wash comes out the rear wiper, Nor under the car so its not leaking out?
Had precisely the same problem with the Clio - rear wash fine, intermittent and then nothing on the front. Pump sounded like it was working OK, but nothing coming out even after I'd done the hoses and washer jets with a can of compressed air.

Turned out that the washer reservoir was full of gunk and that it had killed the pump - had it replaced by my local garage and it cost me 50 quid parts and labour[*]. Could have done the job myself but wasn't able to get the wipers off

This does all use one resevour(sp) I assume?
If it's anything like the Clio, then yes - there's a single screenwash reservoir but the pump itself has two outlets, one for front and one for rear.

[*] - They used a Renault branded pump. GSF do one for about a tenner ex.VAT IIRC.
