I have a 2006 325i with about 90K miles on it. While I had the car up on a lift to do the ATF drain and fill DIY, I noticed there was a small leak from the O-ring between the transmission and the thing in front of it (crank case?) It is part 10 (# 24317536355) in the picture on realoem

Can anyone help me with this? Is this a serious issue? Do I need to take the car to a mechanic, or can I DIY fix this? Or just let it be?

I noticed there was some ATF on the plastic underbody before I started the drain/fill, so the leak must have been there for some time. Car seems to run just fine. I filled new ATF back in the transmission, so should be good for a bit. Just concerned whether this is something serious.

I love the car and would like to keep it if there's no major issues.
