3000 mile (5000 km) 3 monthly service.

This service is to be carried out every 3000 miles (5000 km) or every 3 months, whichever comes sooner.

Service Item


Carry out 1000 mile service: 1000 mile (1600 km) service.
*Grease battery terminals. Use petroleum jelly (vaseline), or battery terminal grease.


Grease kingpins through a grease gun, and use a good quality driveshaft grease.

Kingpins are best lubricated with the front of the car jacked up. Check for excessive play in the kingpins (a little bit is normal), and that grease is not escaping through a loose top cover.
