M10 Repairs by Leica UK

The rangefinder on my M10-P has stopped working.  The arm and front roller stick frequently now whenever a lens is mounted.  

From what I have researched it appears that it needs a bit of a clean and lube, which I am certainly not capable of doing!  Does anyone have any experience of whether Leica UK are likely to repair this or if it will end up going back to Germany.  

From a brief chat with the Leica store in London, they are suggesting to book an appointment with their tech guys and let them take a look.  In an ideal world I’d prefer them to repair as I don’t particularly want to be without the camera for the next 3-4 months, albeit the choices are limited as its only current use at the moment is as a boat anchor!

If you are anywhere near London it must be worth going in to see them. And while you're there, take in a exhibition or two - the Leica store is not that far from the Photographers' Gallery and there are bound to be a few other things worth seeing. But whatever you do, don't look in the used equipment for sale display 😁

I live about 85 miles from The Smoke and can usually conjure up enough excuses to make a day out on the train worthwhile.

Thanks John, I’ve been into the store on a couple of occasions previously, even though I live a couple of hours away & it is an effort to get there.

I think at this stage I have little choice than to book it in there and see what they think.

These may be useful (From Mr Leica.com in the UK).  I cannot vouch for any of them though - sorry the links haven’t copied across.  The Classic Camera in London may also be able to help (where I bought my M10).

Thanks for these. I’ll investigate a couple and find out their thoughts on repair.
