Inspect the shaft closely. As you can see here there is sufficient dirt and other contaminants to prevent a good seal, hence the leak.

Clean the piston shaft, then carefully remove the two rubber seals with a small flat blade screw driver or pick to clean underneath.

Re-install the seals on the shaft.

Lubricate the shaft with a silicone grease that is safe on rubber.
