Default Oil leak

Hello all. My wife's 2002 XC 70 has an oil leak on the passenger side which seems to be coming up above the oil filter and behind the drive belt.

Has anyone experienced this an have any direction where the leak could be coming from? I double checked the tightness of the oil filter cover and the oil drain Bolt.

After sitting overnight the spa on the floor is about 3 to 4 inches in diameter.

Thanks
Stephen

Could be from the cam seals. Check behind the cam gears to see if it's wet

Hello Damien. Can you send a photo or give me some idea where you're referring to behind the cam seals

Hi Paul. Sorry for the long delay I was very busy with work and other life things!

I'm pleased to say I found a leak and it was quite obvious. There was a small line next to a frame on the passenger side near the front that had connection of quarter inch hose and it was disconnected I reconnected it and all is great! The car is due for an oil change soon I will send photos for others to see where the leak came from.
