I need to know which hose on the brake fluid pump send fluid to the rear brakes. Is it the one near the front of the car or to the back of the car as I need to disconnect one of them to stop sending fluid to the rear brakes.

That's not how you fix a brake problem. You don't want to be caught with a line disconnected if you're in a crash, even if the other guy ran the red light. A good lawyer WILL convince the jury you were partly at fault because you were less able to avoid the crash, and he will be right. Insurance investigators love to find things like that.

Both lines go to the rear, one for each side. Most front-wheel-drive cars use a split-diagonal system. Each line feeds one front brake and the opposite rear brake.
