My dealer just did this for me a few days ago, when I had my X1 in for a bunch of other issues. They didn't charge me anything either. At first they didn't know how to do it, but I guess they figured...

That's exactly what the dealer told me. They said it was a very pungent fluid, and they are replacing it with a different, less odorous fluid. I'm sure that will help a lot, and probably explains why...
