What are the common oil leak sources on M120?

I recently purchased my first MB V12, a 97 s600. 130k miles, extensive service history. It is leaking some oil on my driveway. I'm going to take a look tomorrow but wanted to get a heads up on what are the most common oil leak points, and what's involved in repairing them, e.i is engine removal ever necessary, or do rear main seals fail often. Thank you.

The upper timing chain covers same as 6 cylinder , intake manifold has to come off, valve covers have to come off no.2 , power steering reservoir hose leaks , 3 oil level sensor these are most common

You hit the nail on the head. Timing cover is causing all of this mess. I can't even see the power steering hose but I think that's a problem as well as the level was low. Any more info you can give me with regards to the re-sealing of the timing cover would be appreciated. Thank you.
