I bought this 2005 mini cooper s and by the time i drove it home all of the oil had leaked out in the back of the motor on the passenger side, i have no idea what this part is called but the 1st picture is of where the oil is coming out like i said i was on the passenger side of the car facing the back of the motor with my phone upside down, the 2nd picture is of the broke part itself. Any help on this would help me out ALOT

took me a minute to get it right on my head so that bolt is the tension-er assembly rear bolt that bolt oil filter side has broken way its bush,, the oil leak appears to be from the timing chain tension-er end cap that would be my best guess, also other common oil leaks are from the front crankshaft oil seal also have seen the front oil pump plates crack from time to time, i would pressure wash it all off in there and start engine and search for fresh oil and where its leaking
