Rear WIndow Washer Plugged on 2005 Mercury Mariner

My rear window washer has stopped working. I can hear the pump working so I think the line and/or nozzle are plugged. How do I access the nozzle? I can't see any place to get at it from the back side of the rear lift gate.

Have you tried clearing the nozzle with a small safety pin, may be even while a friend activates the washers?
