Yes, the rack is one that slides onto pins on the bumper mounting bracket then screws in through the spare wheel spindle.
My fear/worry isnât so much having to take luggage off the rack to access the spare wheel, but how much tension the rack might be under which might make putting the spindle back through the spare wheel a bit tricky. (I donât think itâs under that much tension but no doubt any puncture will be in the dark and rain, so ideal conditions to find out really
On a slightly different note, the âbad morningâ thread also mentioned difficulties I was having greasing the king pins due to lack of axle stands etc.
This morning I went down to my friendly neighbourhood garage as arranged, to use their ramp and do the job myself. (I just need to see the guy ârightâ at Christmas...)
Car on ramp, no problem, access to nipples, no problem. Did one side then grease gun (Wanner with flexible attachment) decided it had run out of grease
I literally live 100 yards away so walked home, refilled the gun, and finished the job. Having spoken to two different people who were passing the garage and wanted to know about the Morgan, adding a good 10 minutes to the job!
But the best thing of all is that despite the issues in doing these simple jobs, I do feel a real sense of achievement and have despite grumbling really enjoyed fettling the car.
Next on the list is a trolley jack and axle stands - I am welcome to use the ramp at any time but I donât like to impose....plus the garage isnât open Saturday pm or Sundays..
