I think most manufacturers are going the check and leave the spanners in the tool box route. Had the Mazda MX30 in for its first service yesterday, £75 to have it washed and vacuumed out, didn't even lube the door locks/hinges but they did charge extra for topping the windscreen washer bottle up though.

I have previously had a litre of over priced top up oil added to a service bill (as a courtesy) & washer fluid charged for a reservoir that was already full. I had both items removed from the bill.

I was just looking at Morgan's original servicing list. It is probably listed in the manual, but is the Internval every 3,000 miles, and Full Service every 9,000?

Questions on their checklist:
1. How are the doing a "Visual check Centra Drive Rubbers"? Just looking through the bottom hole?
2. What exactly is included in with the "Grease all points on vehicle"?

I don't see a M3W service posting in the Owners Resource area, and just wanted to ensure that I ensure I had all my checks in.

Craig, I used an inexpensive bore scope to look around inside the bellhousing to see how much debris was in there. Getting a peek at the roller is almost impossible because you are looking back toward the hole the scope entered but up into the roller pockets. Big reason to do the Bleazey conversion.

Drive shaft U-joint zerks front and rear are the only lube fittings of which I am aware. Maybe they count BB gear oil, transmission oil and engine oil?

With the front wheel removed, I think you get access to the grease point for the wheel bearings ?

There was certainly a lot of grease in there when I took delivery of mine back in 2013, to the point where it was leaking out.
I have since kept that area well greased.
Can anyone confirm this is correct (that this grease lubes the front wheel bearings) and I am right doing this.

The front wheel bearings are packed with grease on assembly. There is no grease point and the grease shouldn't come out anywhere if the seals are working as they should. As Lightspeed says, the only grease points on the M3W are the two UJ's on the propshaft.

Thank you all for the feedback. I just want to add checkpoints to my regular observation maintenance.

Lightspeed. I still hope to do the Bleazey upgrades at the end of the driving season when I can better afford to have the car down for a while.

Thanks
