Default Broken Brake Line Ram 1500 Day Van (3rd Generation?)

Hi there folks.
Sorry to leap in like this without proper introduction.
A friend of mine has a Dodge Ram Van on which the brakes went, outside our house a couple of days ago. I know a bit more about vehicles than he does so I had a look underneath and saw that brake fluid was spraying out in a fine mist from a junction behind the right front wheel, where the metal pipe joins a rubber junction. (Right Front Side) We managed to drive into the nearest town, about 4 miles away, but here in Spain there are no parts for this vehicle. It was registered in 2003 in the U.S. and then exported, so I think it's the last year of 3rd Generation vans. It has a 3.9 litre engine according to the label under the hood.
I'm sure we can fix the problem if only we can get the right parts, but there are so many different versions of these vans that I have no idea which parts are actually needed. I contacted Whitney, but before we even got into a conversation about parts, they said 4 weeks to ship to Spain, which is no use: way too long. The guy uses the van for work every day.

If anyone can help me with narrowing down the identification of the part No. it would be much appreciated. Any further details you need from me, I'll try to add. I've been to many sites already, but most make the pipes up to order, and don't ship to Europe.

Thanks for your time guys. I hope you can be of some help.
Tina

Hi Tina, and welcome to the Ram Forum Z. I wish I could be of more help, but I wanted to give you a proper hello even though you leaped in... which is great, actually. This will also bump you to the top of the new posts. I'm thinking my 05 truck is probably different from the van, so it would be of no help as well.

It would be a great help if you could get us the VIN off the van and a picture of the affected area.
