I believe you are referring to the timing chain tensioner bolt....

If the leak is in fact coming from the tensioner assembly there is a large thin aluminum crush washer that seals it to the cylinder head. Double check the leak is from there and not the valve cover gasket above it, the crush washer is a dollar or two from the MB dealership.
