R380 Leak Help

R380 leak on the shifter part. So, went to get an estimate for my exhaust and there was a leak coming from the r380. I took the tunnel cover off and its actually on the belltower (me thinks that is what it is called)- the shifter part on the left side. Is this an easy fix? Looks like it should be. Is the seal a paper/cork gasket or is it RTV? See pic for right and left side of belltower.

THe transmission only has 3k miles on it and is from RoversNorth.

I shouldve figured that was coming. Trust me, when we looked at the exhaust, it was creating a puddle, and it was burning as it hit the exhaust.

I talked to RN. I took it off, put on some permatex, and will see if that works tomorrow. My issue was that the d90 repair manual that I have is for RHD, and the diagram showed that part had a nut for the adjustment for 5th gear. But, its different on a LHD NAS90 with reverse bottom right.
