Broke brake pipe - help

So I managed to break the brake pipe as I was turning the nut. This happened on the front driver's side. I identified the replacement part, which seems to be 34302283670.

Does anyone have experience or can help replace the line?

If it is an accessible section you can get to, I would buy the part and replace it. If not, you may have to cut, flare and extend. Brake tubing is fairly standard stuff. Definitely buy a set of metric brake wrenches and use them patiently and carefully.

Hey how did you end up resolving this? I just did the exact same thing to the same pipe...

I'll answer my own question here. Pipe was pretty easy to replace with part # 34302283670. Took a week to get from the dealer for $30. Had to remove the intake, fender liner and a couple engine plastic pieces over the brake fluid reservoir.

Plan B would have been flaring the broken pipe and adding a new piece and fittings. This would be the best approach if you break the right front (passenger side) fitting/pipe.
