How do you know it's not the gasket?
Did this just start?
How long have you had the car?
I had a leak on the SD, I did a service, installed a new gasket, tightened the pan and drain plug to proper torque, no more leak.

Is it coming from the circular thingers on the side? That would be the B1 and B2 piston covers, known to leak sometimes.
