Ben, it's the box that all the hoses attaches to. The side comes off with great difficulty per my dealer's mechanic. My dealer gave me a quart of what looks like ATF when I had my leak. But you should check the BigFoot site to make sure of the type of ATF.
The mechanic at the dealer said to buy a cheap trigger oil gun with a flex hose as it's near impossible to pour it in.
Just checked BigFoot, use dexron IiI only, never hydraulic fluid.
