Advised by my dealer Ledgerwood that emails are going out to Plus Six owners not to use the car until a possible leaking master brake cylinder issue is fixed - loss of brakes is possible.

Not sure if it affects other vehicles.

Dealer meeting tomorrow Wednesday - not sure how cars will get to the dealer.

Affected owners to be contacted.

I had to ring the dealer because I was advised by another motorist that my brake lights were on permanently. Dealer told me to push a switch connected to the brake pedal lever under steering wheel which made a ratcheting noise and moved about an inch which cured the problem.

Mechanism that controls the brake lights must be sticking - need to keep an eye on that.

Well if they have instructed you NOT to drive it MMC is duty bound to trailer it to the factory or more likely your local dealer will pick it up to complete the work.
God help anyone currently on tour then...

Dear Mister ,...................
We understand from our records that you are the current registered keeper of a vehicle with the chassis number
detailed above.
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.
Preliminary investigations indicate that in certain limited circumstances, premature degradation of the rubber seal(s) in
the brake master cylinder may result in compromised brake performance, and in extreme cases cause brake failure.
Because this is a possible safety issue, we are immediately advising that you should not drive your vehicle until a
rectification action has been completed.
Your supplying dealer will contact you as soon as the service action has been finalised in order to arrange for your
car to be rectified.
This work will of course be carried out free of charge. If you have any questions regarding this letter, please speak to
your supplying or nearest Morgan Dealership. Please quote the recall reference detailed at the top right-hand side of
the letter when calling.
We have sent you this important notice as we are concerned about your safety.
Your safety is our highest priority. We regret any inconvenience this inspection may cause; however, we are
committed to ensuring the continued safe operation of your vehicle

This is going to cost.

What’s different in the CX master cylinder department to those on the classics?

Probably a simple & quick rectification for the dealer to complete

Surely the CX master cylinder isn’t unique to Morgan…

Expect it is unique to the CX rather all due to ABS

IIRC it's integral to the servo and access is pretty tight, plus some poor sod's get to wriggle into that tiny footwell to release the pedal connection, then bleed all the hydraulics and the ABS...
