Taking car in for DCT sump pan leak, question

So the dealer found a leak at the sump pan gasket and I am going to be taking the car in for repair. I noticed on the parts list they provided me they only have a quantity of 2 for the DCT Fluid, I dont know if that quantity is qts , liters, etc. I have read it take 5+ bottles to do a fluid change so I was wondering if this sounded correct? I figure they will have to order the fluid and dont want a situation where they dont have enough to do the job. Thanks for any help!

EDIT" Looking at the price on the units I have to assume its only 2 bottles since they are 44 each...so this doesnt seem right.

Believe it around 8 liters, so 2 units each 5 maybe prepared?

How did he spot the leak, without taking the box cover off do you know?

Cheers

He said he took the cover off, it was there for a state inspection, not sure why they would take the cover off for that though.
