Those disclaimer notices don't necessarily have any legal standing, and it's worth pushing the owner of the car wash for compensation even if they do have notices up saying that you're using the thing at your own risk.

Mine was a company car, so it was our accounts department that handled it, but as I recall the garage that owned the car wash did end up paying for the repairs. They should have liability insurance to cover accidents and damage to third-party property, so don't feel too bad about banging in a claim if it's an honest one.
