8 The two slider bolts need to be cleaned with abrasive paper and covered in a small amount of copper grease to ensure the caliper is free to move along them. It was refitted with new Febi brake pads and the slider bolts were tightened to 30Nm. 9 NEW REAR DISCS & PADS Renewing the rear discs and pads is a little quicker than the fronts because the caliper carrier doesn’t need to be removed. However, the slider bolts are a different design and have to be undone with 13mm and 15mm spanners. After prising off the caliper, we discovered the brake pads were a little more worn than the fronts, but the discs weren’t as bad.

Wiper motors are also prone to failure. The 9-5 has heavy-duty wiper arms, and their weight can cause premature wear to the motors, so look for juddering as the wipers pass across the screen. A replacement motor will set you back around £100, but is a fairly easy fix provided you can free off the wiper arms from the spindles – a day soaking in penetrating oil should do it, but unless the weather is dry it will render the car off the road.
