Recurring transmission fluid leak issue....

I've found the useful posts about transmission fluid leaks tied to a faulty O-ring and/or replacement adaptor plug for the wiring harness (adapter plug P/N 68021352AA).

NEEDED: Can somebody assist with where/how to view the adaptor plug to look for leaking fluid? What is the best way to see the adaptor? Is it visible without a lift and/or is there a viewing angle to see it directly? Pictures would be greatly appreciated if there's a way to see it without disassembling things.

History:
I've had my 2010 in for its routine tranny filter/fluid/pan gasket replacement at the dealer.

A few months after that work, I found that the transmission was leaking fluid and it would slip between shifts from 1 to 2.

During an alternator replacement at a different shop, I asked them to take a look...they suspected the pan gasket was leaking based on where the tranny fluid was collecting....and they suggested I go back to the dealer that performed the recent work to see if maybe the gasket was pinched or something else going on with the work performed.

I brought it back into the dealer.... This visit resulted in replacing the rear output shaft seal on the transmission, citing that was the source of the leak. Also replaced transmission mount (NAPA part 6202581) during that same visit.

And now... three months later, slipping again between 1 to 2, and I'm researching what others have seen...

So, I need some help to locate the adaptor to look for leaking fluid before taking it back in to the dealership blindly and wanting to make sure they look for the easy solution found by others on this forum.

Thanks all!
