Question about Rancilio Audrey
I have a very old rancilio miss audrey that makes very good coffee, however I have a serious problem concerning the steam valve.
How can I disassemble the rancilio audrey steam valve in order to fix a leaking problem. The valve is constantly leaking water during the coffee making process, which causes a diminishing pressure. I think it has to do with a small rubber ring in the valve, but I am not sure how to fix it.
Which part of the valve has to be loosened first?

You should take out the knob first, than you try to disasembke the SHAFT of valve from the valve body, in this types(small espresso coffe machines) usualy producer use conical valve, without seals she close metal to metal, when you get out the SHAFT you will see one line on the conical end. for repairing it will be enough to visit one metal vorkery where they will take a small amount of brass from end and polish it. then you put it back and work again with your machine.
ps: notice you only polish the SHAFT , dont let them to short the more than 0.5 mm
