I recommend having the system serviced to remove the brake fluid.

DO IT ASAP!

ALL THE RUBBER STUFF WILL SWELL UP!

IF IT REACHES THE WHEELS, IT WILL SWELL THERE AS WELL, AND "SEALING" WILL BE COMPROMISED!

WHAT YOU CAN MAYBE DO NOW TO HELP MATTERS IS "S. UCK" ALL YOU CAN OUT, WITH A SYRINGE OR A BABY'S "NOSE S. UCKER" (LACK OF CORRECT NOMENCLATURE) AND ADD NEW FLUID. THE SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE BLED REALLY REALLY SOON. DRIVING/ BRAKING WILL MAKE IT SPREAD FASTER, SO KEEP IT MINIMAL

MY ARMY BUDDY "TOPPED OFF" MY JEEP CJ 5, BACK IN ABOUT '84, WHEN HE "TOPPED OFF" HIS.I DID NOT KNOW, TILL ABOUT 4 DAYS LATER, BRAKES SORTA FELT FUNNY----THIS WAS MY FIX! NEW MASTER CYLINDER----4 WHEEL CYLINDER KITS---MAYBE 2 BIG BOTTLE OF BRAKE FLUID TO FLUSH AND REFILL----MAYBE 8 HOURS, ME AND HIM "LABORING". WAS NOT SOMETHING I LIKED!
