You can rebuild a wheel cylinder but, my advice would be to just replace it with a new factory rebuilt one. You need to also replace the brake shoes at the same time. They are more likely soaked with brake fluid and are ruined. Replace both sides at the same time. Also, while you are doing this repair, I recommend you replace all the brake fluid in the system with fresh fluid from an unopened container, and bleed the brakes in this sequence. Start at the Right Rear, then LR, RF, and finish at the LF. The cause of the leaking wheel cylinder is probably water in the system that cause the cylinder to rust and leak.
