I am having a hard time finding out what fluid I need to purchase. Supposedly there was a recall on mine before I bought it and its now leaking from the caulking/gasket.. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I hesitate to post this because it is NOT information for your model. In case it is helpful though, the 825i has a transaxle in the rear that requires HyGard. The FRONT differential uses ATF.

Hope this helps.
