Magura rim brakes faulty?

What you need to do is undo that nut with the hole in the top, slide the hose through it then put an olive (http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/rim_brake_spares/magura_hs33_olives_2/c5p28.html) over the end of the hose. Push the hose down in the hole the nut came out of then whilst holding the hose firmly in place tighten that nut back up. The olive will squeeze into the hose to grip it and hold it in place.

Ah okay i see thanks :) big relief they don't seem to cost much!

Both brakes need bleeding... Do I need to get a specific magura bleeding kit?

You can buy a bleed kit or you can water bleed them using tap water and a bit of anti freeze mixed in, will find the link to a vid showing you how

And this will work properly even at -10°C and doesn't do harm to the brake?

You might as well just use pure anti freeze, I have for years & never had a problem, had plenty of problems with water bleeds though.

that was the last thing I used before my lever bit the dust.. don't you have temperature problems? I did, as soon as it got cold (on a cold day, screaming down hill) the lever didn't return propperly. As soon as it was warm again (back home by the radiator) it was fine (also put it in the freezer with the same result)
