Hydrulic Brake Line ?

Gota 87 E30 325i and changed the rotors and pads and bled the lines, but then went fora drive and had no pressure to the brakes, so checkem them again, and still no pressure. jacked the car up and pumped the brakes, and the brake fluid was spraying like a cut artery from one of these 3 lines running underneth the car. i dont have a picture, and couldnt find a picture. but was told it wasthe main hydrulic brake line... is that a custom part or is that a dealer only fix, or what would i use to replace that?

Bend a new line to fit, Costly and time consuming.
you will need a line bender and a flare kit.

The less correct way is to cut out the bad section and tap in a new piece of line using cuplings. either way your local parts store should have theese items. Check pep boys we just did this for a customer last week. Road Salt is a bitch.
thank you very much !
