    I am thinking the hose needs to be replaced - however contact magura directly as their warranty is VERY good and I am willing to bet they will hook you up.

    Magura warranty's against leakage for 5 years.

    Did you first check to ensure that the banjo bolt is snug?

    its the bolt that afixes the banjo/line to the caliper and believe it uses a torx bit to remove/tighten.

    Additionally....

    Since your already going to need a brake bleed. Take the line off the caliper and check the condition of the two o-rings ( crush washers?) inside the banjo. This could certainly be the source of your leak. New o-rings will cost you barely nothing.

    Easy, use swiss stop, thats the only brake pad I use in my 4 mtb, excellent stopping power, no noise, last longer.
