1995 E320 Wagon W124.092 Brake Line Diagram

I wanted to post this as a new thread, but I can't figure out how to do that. Maybe someone can enlighten me on that as well. Anyways, I'm hoping someone can help me with a brake line issue on my 1995 & 1/2 E320 Wagon W124.092. I say 1995 & 1/2 because they did a few things differently on these vehicles manufactured after March of that year VIN's ending in F32355. It shouldn't make a difference for this, but I like to be accurate.

Can anyone post a diagram of the brake lines for a W124? Specifically, I'm looking for the diagram for a 1995 E320 Wagon (W124.092). My rear brake line unions are seized, and I'm debating options for fixing this problem. I've basically got 3 choices as I see it.

1) Do nothing

2) Cut the line, and reflare or splice in a new section of line

3) Replace the entire line

I haven't had a chance to really get under the car and trace the lines yet, and it's not super easy for me to do. I've got a bit of a disability which makes it a little harder than usual. I'm hoping that there is a brake line distribution block in the rear for this vehicle, but my luck is rarely that good. If I have to route the line all the way to the front of the vehicle, then I will probably go with either option 1 or option 2. The brake hoses are in questionable condition, but not necessarily "bad". I wouldn't be surprised if they are responsible for a little bit of squishiness or clatter, but I don't think they have risen to the level of particularly unsafe. I would like to replace them though, and I already have the replacement lines. I've replaced the front lines already, but could not get these unions to budge. I tried penetrating oil & wax, and yes I was using flare nut wrenches. I know the first line of thought, and often the correct one, is that people are idiots. I even tried flat jawed vice grips, and using vice grips in combination with the line wrench.

Two ways to post a new thread.

New way like vstech said, click on the yellow "Post New Topic" button, located near the upper left corner, when you open the forum page.

Old way is still active, but is a two click method.
Click on the "Post a New Thread" button after clicking open the drop down list under "Forum Tools".
It is located near the upper right corner, just above the "Last Post" column.

Have a read of my experience here with MB brake pipes (W210)

Bubble flare or double flare? - Mercedes-Benz Owners' Forums

Even with the correct tool and fittings, doing this under the car is difficult simply because of the pressures involved. Flaring the new pipe is easy as soft, but that MB pipe is another thing altogether.
