I’ve been fighting a leaking Magura brake and need some guidance regarding possible solutions or parts sources. I have the stainless steel braided lines on HS-33’s. The leak’s at one of the fittings into a caliper. I’ve reseated the line (fresh cut), and tightened things, but the tapered compression nut/sleeve that squeezes the line over the fitting bottoms out too easily, and the leak resumes after a few rides with brake usage. So I’m concerned the nut might have become ovalized or somehow worn too large to compress the line tight enough. The line did get pulled from the caliper during CMW, so there’s a possible reason for it to have become deformed.
Anyone have other ideas, or know where I can get replacement fittings? I’d probably go for replacing both the underlying fitting as well as the compression nut just to be sure. Also, where does one get replacement stainless line? The LBS’s around here either don’t carry Magura, or just seem clueless about Magura brake repair. If they do have anything, it’s only for the plastic line stuff, not stainless. Help!
