I have a set of Magura Julie from the early 2000's. The ones with the oval cap on the reservoir.

Sadly the front one is starting to weep oil from around the reservoir cap. To compound the issue the allen key bolt is rounded off.

Firstly, can spares be obtained? If so from where? Or, should i attempt to dismantle and find out if the weeping can be cured without parts?

Many thanks in advance.

Have you tried you local Magura Service Center, or Magura UK for parts avaliblity?

Would expect it not to be worth repairing, that generation of Julie was very cheap, and compared to modern brakes very wooden in feel.

Good luck with getting the spares, the Lousie always looked a lot better than the Julie, which was not a nice brake to use.
