Morning Robert

My engineers logic says yes, as the mechanism will be an assembly of parts from several suppliers, how ever if the assembly has been constructed using crimped joints and pipe unions it may be  more complicated and costly than a replacement.

Is there enough room to fit a joining piece in the pipe? if there is that may be the answer is there a way to replace any lost fluid? 

I would check its an online BMW parts list put the last 7 digits of your Vin in the search box it will bring up your model, in the parts lists there are exploded drawings which will help. Also have a look at this is the same technical information that BMW Dealers use. There are hydraulic specialists who repair plant on site such as Pirtec but what the cost would be and whether it would be economical, like the old radio programme "sorry I haven't a clue"

Hope this is some help.
