Default Brake Problem

I just purchased a 98' Legacy 2.5 GT and the problem I am having is that there is a leak on the brake line right before the junction block. Now If I were to replace the hard line from the block to the rear brakes hoses. I would need to remove the gas tank and the rear differential this is according to the manual.
Another issues is that basically the bolts on the rear of this car have rusted because of exposure to road salt and I was trying to avoid removing these bolts and be opening more can of worms.
I hope there is somebody out there that had to do the same thing and was able to find a solution.

I'm not sure I understand where that leak is, but you could cut out the leaking section and just get some brake line from your local auto parts place to splice in a new section. Use -3AN hardware so you'll only have to make 37deg single flares, which are painfully easy to do.

I apologize but what is a 3AN hardware, is this the same as compression fittings? What I need to do is cut the line that is inside the car next to the running board and splice there and go out into the junction block and then replace the line from the junction block to the trailing arms. But to do this I need to remove the rear end and the fuel tank. I am trying to way out my options.

Thanks,
