Not sure how dangerous it is.

However, I overfilled mine. Mechanic put manually operated syphon tool down filler tube and sucked up the excess.
Then discharged it into the recycle barrel. Did not require messing with drain plug.

hey M
not really dangerous, 1/2" over is usually not a big problem..
but if its too full it will cause foam, and put a lot of air in the fluid..

just get a turkey baster, suction gun, battery filler
and a long piece of vacuum hose and suck a little out..
suction gun is a good tool to have around for rear ends, brakes ..
