winch issue

ok, i was installing my superwinch a few days ago and accidently unscrewed a bolt which let [what i guess was some sort of] oil spill out. I didnt even realize it until it was all over the bumper.
it's the bolt circled in red:

so do i need to refill this with something?
if so, what?

i already posted this in off-road equipment but no response.
so thanks for any help

I'd contact superwinch if I were you. IIRC correctly I used gear lube in mine when I removed the planetary gears, but I could be wrong, so I would contact superwinch before you do anything just to make sure

Nice winch BTW. Make sure your work the cable out before you need to pull out Patrick.
