It might have been guarantied for life at the time of purchase. But those are usually limited to the original owner with supporting documentation. It also depends on which country you're in. If in the USA you're probably out of luck since the original importer is long gone, and I don't know if they have an agent here these days.
If you bought it locally, step one is to go to the shop where you got it, and start there.
Lifetime guaranties are interesting. They don't specify which lifetime, the you, the dealer, importer, or manufacturer. (lawyers don't chime in here, I'm talking practicality, not legality) Once the responsible entity is gone, the guaranty is gone with him
