Transmission leak!!!! Help

Ive been searching through through out the forum and with no luck...I have a 2005 745i I have a transmission leak. It's not leaking from the pan I check it. It seems to be leaking from where the wire connectors are right in front of the trans pan. My question is... How do I know if it's the mechatronics sealing sleeve leaking or the torque converter seal leaking... Please any experience techs on here please respond...

Thank you in advance for your assistance!!

Good luck.
Please take some pictures and consider opening a DIY thread, if you want.
