Brake pipes, not lines.
These are pipes to carry brake fluid.

The brakes on the rear operate in two ways.
One is via cables for the handbrake.
Second is hydraulically, same as the front brakes, when you put your foot on the pedal.

The pipes are corroded. Inspector believes they are at the point of failing, leaking, which isn't good

As said, relatively simple job but can be time consuming.
Currently in Dancingdad's garage:
Qashqai 1.6 spark driven, Kia Sedona 2.9 TDI, Scenic II 15DCi 2004 (SORN) not quite RIP.
