Right rear wheel cylinder (assuming you have a drum brake in the back) is a couple bolts and an oil line going in. You would need to remove the drum brake parts to remove it but a new cylinder would probably run around 20 bucks in an auto part store.

If it is a disc with caliper and it is leaking from the caliper piston itself, your looking at a new caliper which may run around 40 bucks. You may just have a line leak and in the rear it should be pretty easy to remove and replace with a new section.

Bleeding the brakes should be done for both rear brakes at the same time to be certain. You need to open the bleeders to do this. Be careful, use penetrating oil and plenty of time.. maybe a lil heat as well.
