rear wiper & washer is not an mot test item in terms of function.
Only thing they can fail on is if loose/insecure or protruding.
rear washer is handy though as our rear windows get plastered & not washed even when raining thanks to the rear spoiler.

Not having a washer bottle for front wipers is a fail just find a friendly mot tester if u were all down my ways I could get any of your cars passed as long as they are safe
My mate can over look the few niggly bits and bobs

Don't take it off as it not a check in terms of function, they can not fail because it not covered like windscreen washer & wiper. Most they could do is give you friendly advise/remark on function condition/fault of rear wiper & washer, would only fail if close to falling off or sticking out causing a hazard.
Our R mot man should be able verify this ...

I relocated mine to the boot.
Under the wing I joined the pipes together and connected wiring from the original point,down the sill into the boot to connect.to the washer bottle which I made 2 90 degree brackets,1 bolted to the boot floor and 1 to the inner quarter.
Behind the trim I cut the rear washer feed and connected 2 pipes to feed both washer pumps. Job done :-)

Ive got a washer bag in the boot comes with a washer pump, easy to fit does not take up alot of room, on E-Bay for about a tenner, dont worry about the rear washer, not even a checkable item for the MOT.
When I bought my R it had an MOT but the washers did not work, only found out when I got it home there was no washer bottle, or fog light, then a brake pipe burst after a couple of weeks, bit of a dodgy MOT me thinks.

Yes rear washer is not an mot requirement so personally I would not bother unless you want it then as said just connect it up.

One little tip though I've found with locating it to the rear is..........if you go on track with the car you'll find that when braking hard the washer fluid is forced through the washer jets and ends up trickling all over the bonnet which leaves a hard to get rid of stain, if it's a hot day combined with the heat from the bonnet on track it's a booger to polish out
So easy fix is to fit a non return valve in line this will stop it emptying through the jets and save polishing out nasty water marks baked on under heat.

Yeah I didn't worry about connecting the rear either. Found a neat aluminium washer tank on eBay that I mounted in the rear.
