Just because you can hear what sounds like a leak from the valve don't automatically assume that you have a leak, at least not necessarily one there. I can say from experience that problems elsewhere in the parking brake system can result in sounds that would make you certain you have a leak at the valve.

Why don't you tell us more about the symptoms and the folks here will try to help.

Welcome. Not sure what you have but, if you have the yellow square push in pull out valve, not bad to swap out. First, make sure you actually have a leak. Are you losing pressure on your guage? Do you hear it when brake is on or off? If the valve is bad, you need to knock the little roll pin out that holds the handle on. Do this wth a small punch and small hammer and... DO NOT BEAT IT HARD!! Then there is a large nut that mounts it to the dash. Remove that and tthe valve is free. Only problem is you have to disassemble the dash to pull it out in order to gain access to the rear of the valve and lines. Good luck.
