Oil leak RH side of 300tdi

I have a small leak that is spraying some oil on the Webasto and the heater box. Not sure where to start looking. Thoughts on what is loose/leaking?

Photo shows the Webasto cover in oil, seems to be coming from something under the air filter.

That would make sense. Something is off with my oil temp and oil pressure sender too. Maybe (hopefully) it's all connected. It's all happened in the last week.

first thing is to figure out what kind of oil it is.

If it's a 300tdi, it could be diesel as well.

Black diesel?

Alexandra, take some more pix please.
Showing with the cam towards the engine underneath the air filter and some more to the oil filter adapter.

With the motor running, use a piece of white shirt cardboard and see if you can pinpoint the direction of the oil spray.
It worked for me.
