Leaky Brake Fluid Reservoir

Brake fluid (87 5ktq) has started to leak around the rubber "grommets" which
connect the reservoir to the MC. I have new grommets on their way and have
been warned they are a PITA (in VW apps) to replace. The brake system is
fine...but the fluid wants to dribble out of this connection. Any advice on
this? My plan is to suck out the fluid with a turkey baster type thing and
have at it. I'm told some lubricant is required to get new grommets back in,
vaseline, KY???? Any history of the reservoir itself cracking? TIA before I
bathe in paint eating brake fluid ;-)
