you can check with the dealer to see if they have the replacement lines available. If the line rusted out, were the fittings okay? you can buy brake line from the parts store and make a new line with the fittings. You will need a flare tool for the ends and maybe a line bender to get the angles or just take it to a auto repair shop and have them make you one.

Thanks carriedi for your quick response.
Fitting was rusted at union down line, ok at ABS module.
I'm not so flexible any more and getting the line out was a challenge, was hoping for a quick install with a less winding route .
Looking at flaring tools now.

there are different styles of flares used. make sure you use the correct one for your vehicle. Most parts stores have the fittings and brake line you need.

no, you don't have to exactly match the original line. Just do the best that you can and make sure there isn't any leak from the line of fittings
