Ask Darrin at roamingyak.org, his dvd is advertised at the top of this page I think and I seem to remember he called on the services of someone in Marrakech...

In Zagora, they'll find you!

As you come out of the desert, the guys ride around on scooters and ask if you need service.

I had brakes fixed there, they did a decent job.

HTH,
Nick.

...but, as with most mechanics in Africa, it's worth watching what they're doing.

Rgds,
Nick.

They provide a valuable steering testing service as well. See how many you can run off the road whilst 'testing' your steering ;-)

LR mechs in Morocco

Morocco is full of LRs - loads of parts there. Their oil filters are bigger than Euro spec ones - better for cooling oil down. Parts are cheaper there too - worth bring a few home for your next service!

Erraji Nourdine in Erfoud is good - SW of marketplace on the Errachidia road.
There is a good one in Zagora too - ask at Camping Sindibad.
There's said to be a good one in Rabat too but Im not sure where - if you are in Sidi Kaouki on the coast there is an Italian guy with a 90 there who can point you at a few.
