2013 Mini Countyrman - ongoing dramas .. 1.6 Diesel

Latest and hopefully last is OIL LEAK

Bottom of Bell Housing is 'wet' just above the sump drain bolt. Oil drips on garage floor.

Anything other than Timing Cover or Rear Main Seal that I should check ????

Already had the engine out twice..uggg

Nope.. Not the drive shaft oil seal.
It doesn't leak until the car has been running for a while and then it drips out a lot.

There is a lot of pressure coming out the oil filler cap when I remove it. I can put my hand a foot above and feel it strongly.

I suspect that might contribute to oil leak and it is a problem of the CCV ?

First mini and first diesel I have ever worked on so I don't know anything about the ccv systems. I can easily check a pcv valve etc... but dont know what to check on this.

Any suggestions ?
