Q: Rear brake cylinder leaking

You will need to have the brake cylinder replaced. I recommend replacing both sides so that brake pressures will be equal. Once replaced, its a good idea to flush the brake system with fresh brake fluid. I suggest having a qualified technician handle the repairs to ensure the brake system is serviced properly.
