Hi guys, I was wondering if someone can help me to figure out if there is some risk of leak on my Magura’s Louise?
Yesterday I was bleeding my brakes on a hurry and dumb me forgot to put the yellow think that hold the caliper pistons apart. When I pushed oil through the circuit the oil started pushing the pistons out. And since there were no pads (or anything for that matter) to keep the pistons apart, eventually one of the pistons went out of place and let the oil flow out from that place; actually a lot of oil came out through the piston. After some self cursing , I pushed the piston back to its place; which was really easy to do. I then continued to bleed the brakes and looked for leaks at the pistons; I closed the circuit and pushed the levers really hard to build up pressure but I couldn’t find any leak.
I couldn´t find a diagram of the caliper, but something tells me there must be a seal or o-ring behind the piston. If this is the case, I am worried that when I the piston came out said seal went out of place as well and now I have a risk of leak on the system. I tested the brakes and all seems to be fine.
What would you advice to check in order to be sure everything is ok? Does anyone has a diagram of the caliper assembly? I rather do a complete check up and find everything is fine, that finding I have a problem on the trail.
Thanks in advance for your help.
