Rear brake lines.

Hi everyone!
Are rear brake lines goes all the way up from the hose by the wheel to the pump or are they joined somewhere in the middle?
EPC shows they are split and joined by a spacer but I can't locate it..
Any suggestions where is that spacer?

Thanks

I checked WIS myself. Looks like in case of rust damage, brake lines needs to be cut, flare on the car and then joined by the spacer with the replaced piece of lines. Than's what I'm gonna do. I'm changing rear axle brackets so it's a great opportunity to do so.

Thanks!

Don't tell me you've got rear brake line rust already... something made in 2010 shouldn't be rusting!

Bergen, Norway - between November and April the roads are white from salt, everything rusts here 4 times quicker.
