Normal wear and tear on wheel cylinders may cause the piston seals to leak. Also, corrosion and pitting can occur inside wheel cylinders as moisture builds up in the brake fluid. A leaky wheel cylinder can be dangerous to the driver, causing gradual softening of the brake pedal and creating brake pull to one side.
