Malibu bottom upright fitting wire wear issue

Applies from: 17th August, 2015

Applies to: Any Moyes glider using round uprights.

Inspection: Whenever an upright is broken or bent it may cause damage to the top and bottom upright fittings, these parts should be inspected closely and replaced at any sign of wear or damage.

Service Requirement: Replace bottom upright fitting after 300 hours or if wire slot widens to greater than 4.8 mm.

It has been bought to our attention of a potential problem of the bottom upright fitting on gliders with round uprights.
The wear has occurred on the slot where the ball swage fits into.
