I’ve got a full fluid reservoir and been driving for eighteen months so think risk is minimal but need to call dealer to ask if leak is gradual or Chernobyl.

Don‘t feel save if you don‘t loose fluid!

I‘ve got old MINIs and now a 2018 Plus4. With both cars I‘ve got no pressure in the clutch system. „Only“ the clutch.

The MINI mastercylinder (and the slave) was rebuild, the MOG was brand new.

The MINI lost the systempressure and I realize there is something wrong. But not really wrong… more in a way „ups, worse clutch? Wrong shift the gears.“ And than: bang, no clutch. Without any loose of fluid. The gaiters inside the cylinders doesn‘t work.

The MOG a little different. Yes, there was something wrong changing the gears. Also I notice: not so so smooth…
But than a total loose of clutch… waiting a moment… the world is just okay. A lot of miles later: ah, is it wrong or is it right?
Than a stop: total loose of clutch pressure.

Both worries without any loose of fluid! So keep aware, may be the pressure is missing in a bad moment.

I'm sure there's a bit of overkill but my understanding is that as an official recall and as such it would be foolish to ignore and may invalidate insurance.
I'm just concerned about how long the fix will take given that they've not officially said what needs to be done and the cars will need to be trailered to the dealer.

Not good news for affected owners or Morgan. Best to take it seriously and get the car checked ASAP.

If it's proven/recognised to be the braking system manufacturer at fault MMC will transfer the costs maybe.

Once the CX owners have personally received this email from MMC they have effectively transferred the risk onto the owners/drivers with all that implies..

yes ,yesterday from Steven Sels. I will drive myself to the garage , It is less risky than a trailer . I suppose it will not fail directly after receiving the letter.

Just had an email from Williams, quoting correct chassis number and telling me to stop driving my Plus 4.

We would like to advise you that during ongoing quality assessment of our product we have identified a possible safety related issue in respect of all Morgan Plus Four and Plus Six vehicles.

However I think they are taking 'all Plus 4' too literally, as mine is a 2007!

Maybe an opportunity for a new master cylinder ? although there may be a problem getting it to fit

Just been told of this problem. Apparently we must not drive our vehicles. Due to possible brake failure (mentioned in the recall) and the fact that we must not drive, are we actually insured? Read the small print in your policy. I bet we are not and if we have an accident then who will pay. But how are we going to get our vehicles to our dealership?

I'll repeat it - Once the CX owners have personally received this email from MMC they have effectively transferred the risk onto the owners/drivers with all that implies.. including invalidating your insurance naturally.

MMC have the responsibility now to trailer your car to your dealer or the factory.

Happy to be corrected as always.

This is a bummer but a safety call is serious unlike a dripping radiator or cardboard seats...
