The 9-5 is the same. The hub nut does NOT need to come off to replace the brake disk. For the rear brakes the handbrake shoes in the drum brake inside the disk must be backed off by manipulating the adjuster through the hole in the front of the disk. Then just remove the caliper and one screw on the front of the disk and pull the disk off. Some people have reported that the disks can be hard to remove and that some force may be needed to pull them off. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com
