Oil Leak on 182 Cup

  GT86, 335, Westfield

I have noticed an oil leak on my Clio. The oil is collecting on the top of the engine.

I thought this was a failed cam cover gasket, but reading EVO today, I now think this may be the camshaft carrier seals.

Any ideas on the cost of repairing this if it is indeed the carrier seals? I understand that the cams need to come out....

Any help gratefully received as it's going into the garage on Monday and I'm worried about this now.

Thanks for your help. This is a real pain, I just spent £800 on the cambelt and service in October.
