i did most of what was written...

by chance .... a good while after, sat behind the wheel -- exactly where i was when the wipers stopped when i was at the shop... i knocked the steering wheel housing with my clumsy hand ... guess what ...

yup, the wipers started working again and the washer did also

loose wire/dust/ grime in the steering wheel unit.[dont know, its working though].. just below the plastic cover.. oh well, i wont bore you with the details of all the troubleshooting before that [hours]

so before you start ripping out the motor and such stuff -- if both washer and wipers stop working but rear continues and all other stick functions radio, etc work... try for a loose wire first
