Same here. During an inspection after an oil change my Chrysler dealership notified me that a wet connector was leaking trans fluid. Not sure how long the problem has been there, but I was down about .5 quart of trans fluid. They charged me $165 for the repair.
Electrical Connector into transmission is leaking oil.

I've been told by dealer that this was a common problem on the 2005 model and that it would cost $185.00 to fix it. Unfortunately because it is a seal it is not covered under an extended warranty I bought with the car.

Does anyone know if this repair is a simple one or is the dealer the better way to go? For example I did my own cabin air filter and saved $70 over the dealer's quote.
