Dear same-- What kind of friend is this? You washed his 2001 Mercedes SL500 convertible for him and now he is accusing you of screwing up the headlight washers? Those wipers are easy to damage and that is why most manufacturers have done away with them and replaced them with a high pressure washer. Take it a good mechanic and he can repair it for you and next time your friend needs his car washed, let him do it himself. Good luck from Bovan.

yes and I thank you for your answer. I had a feeling the wipers were probably just waiting for me to take the heat. My friend is still a little miffed and I did tell him I'd not offer to wash it again.
