Don’t forget to also
TRY OUT THE HANDBRAKE Too many ‘clicks’ before it engages or failure to hold the car sufficiently means adjustment is needed, via the nut under the centre cubby armrest.
CLEAN OUT DRAINHOLES on the body and doors, using something like a small screwdriver or wire – they can get blocked up, which will promote rust.
CLEAR OUT MUDTRAPS around the bodywork, such as inside the wheelarches. If mud is allowed to build up, it could lead to corrosion.
