The shop replace the electrical connector and the car is leaking again. They are still trying to figure this out.
This was a $15 rubber grommet. My indy shop did not even charge labor, they said it was so easy. It caused me no performance problems or other damage, but I did get it fixed within days of noticing a drip in the driveway. I've gone almost 40,000 miles since with no problems.
