Being kind to my LT, I decided to flush the clutch fluid. Used Valvoline Synthetic DOT 3&4 Brake Fluid. It was pretty uneventful and I closed the reservoir, cleaned a couple stray drips and went inside. When I looked later the level window was leaking. Nothing huge, but still wet around the window.

Has this happened to anyone else? Is it repairable?

BTW, I didn't follow the manual exactly by rotating the clutch reservoir because I couldn't figure how the heck to get the radio controls off to get to the nut to loosen the clutch reservoir. But it didn't cause any problems, I just had to be careful not to let the level get too low.

I don't think we have seen that before. Make sure it was not some spill over that collected there. Brake fluid has a bad habit of creeping. It is not listed as a replaceable part.
