OK that's not a brake line, it's the brake hydraboost line run off your power steering pump, DO NOT MIX the two typres of fluid! Brake system will be destroyed! Just replace that hydraulic line to the booster and bleed it. Turn the wheel all the way a few times while checking the fluid in the power steering pump. Do not keep wheel forced at the stop! Do not allow power steering pump to run dry!

NO the line goes to the hydraboost, powered by your powerer steering pump, not your brakes. It is the powerer assist for your brakes, not your brakes.
