  9. 9-5 Workshop
    Hi Guys, I completed a big anti sludge inspection on my 1999 9-5 SE 2.3t Estate. It didn't go great as I lacked certain tools and had to keep going on near fruitless shopping trips for them. Anyway I know everyone loves pictures so I captured as much as possible. I've also tried to show some...
