Thanks to all but one for their support. The vehicle was collected by Morgan today for repair so will be sorted properly. This is a great forum to which I would only add if you have nothing positive to say then please don’t say anything! The last thing anyone should do is not ask for help or advice for fear of being belittled.

If it weren't for these types of candid questions and (vast majority) helpful answers, I wouldn't dare own my 3W in the States. You've probably helped me and others to avoid the same mistake. Thanks and best of success with your repair.

As many will know, I am an avid DIYer, and tend to work by the principle of 'if you want a job doing properly, do it yourself'. I encourage anyone to have a go at self maintenance. There is usually nothing major that can go massively wrong or that can't be fixed - all part of the learning curve.

The only caveat I would put on is with brakes. Unless you are 100% confident in what you are doing, I would suggest leaving it to someone who knows what they are doing. If something goes wrong with brakes, the results can be absolutely devastating for the driver or third parties. There are also potential insurance issues as it could be claimed that your actions have made your vehicle unroadworthy which would invalidate the insurance.

Agree with you TBM. I was only changing a tyre and the brakes were impacted when the brakes were incorrectly reattached. Now brakes are impacted it’s back at Morgan.
