Looking at doing some brake work and found the two nuts (what's the proper word for these !!) on the pipes from the master cylinder are rounded out, my 10 mm spanner won't get on without slipping. Photo below, couldn't get a photo from the side but there's plenty of wear. Can these nuts be replaced or am I looking at replace the hard lines ? I've looked over various electronic parts catalogues which I normally enjoy but couldn't figure this one out. Any help appreciated thanks.

They can only be replaced if you cut the flared end of the brake line off. Once you fit the new nut you need to re-flare the end of the brake line again.

In practice it would be easier to replace the lines.
