Did you drop the oil pan or the transmission pan? To remove the engine oil pan, the front muffler needs to be removed.

If the repair did not involve removing the muffler, then you may have done another repair instead and drained the transmission by accident? Also why did you not just take it in to the dealership? Your vehicle looks to be a year old. The leak repair would have being done under warranty?
