Hi Barry13

I have 2016 Morgan 4/4 and yes It does have a grease nipple on the prop shaft. From memory it’s not easy to access on my car, which is why i get Williams Automobiles to grease it during the annual service.

Yep 3. You may be lucky and have an access hole in the gearbox tunnel. Otherwise you need to get in underneath for the front , which really requires a lift. I put a post on the pre cx trad area on my 3.7l Roadster and accessing the front ujs.
For the rear you can remove the tool tray and access the nipple.

Just give them a half pump of grease once a year
