Hi all, I'm new to the forum and relatively new to BMW. I have an X5 but my son just bought a 1998 523i at auction. WRONG, had to replace motor which we attacked ourselves, 40 years since I pulled the motor out of a very simple car, my son didn't know the difference between a ring and a socket! We lost quite a lot of transmission fluid and I can,t find how to refill. All you-tube vids are of a different box. This is auto but only 8 bolts on the pan, found what I thought was filler hole at back of case but it has some sort of obstruction. Any threads covering this, I'm over it!:

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to our E39 5 Series forum, you'll get more help in here.

Determine which trans you have, and do a search on fluid service for that model. With eight bolts, you likely have an AS5 series.

A good time to change fluid and filter.
