My Ride: 2005 330xi
2005 330xi ATF Fluid/filter Change Issue

I was doing my first ATF fluid and filter change on my 330xi at 106,000. (I bought it at 104,000, so I am going through all the fluid changes.) I know the xi had the GM tranny, but when I looked for the full plug, I was looking for a torx head bolt on the side above the pan. Instead, I noticed a 17mm hex head, no torx (torx on drain plug though). I had sprayed some penetrant to loosen, but then stripped the bolt.

Is this the right bolt or did someone helicoil this thing?

Glad I tried to take the full bolt off first!

Any expertise on the xi would be appreciated.
