Brake repairs are a matter of safety so make sure you are confident you can replace the defective part and properly bled the brakes afterward. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate
Read the instructions fully first and make sure you have the parts and tools to complete the job.

If the line that is leaking is metal, you will need special tools to make this repair. While sections of line and fittings are available at your local parts store, you also need to bend the line and cut/make connections to the original brake line. A good shop with a good mechanic can usually do this for you in about an hour.
