Angry OIl leak from fron of engine (W-210)

Hey guys.. I have a 1999 E-320 (W-210) which has a small but significan oil leak in the front part of thge engine.
Let me try and describe where: When facing the engine, it is on the right hand side. It is in plain sight; right behind the V-poly belt. It is a small cap-like piece (~1.5" in height and ~1" in width). It has two screws holding it in place (top & bottom) and a third screw that seems to be attached to something inside the engine.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Can it be taken out and the gasket replaced?

Thanks in advance for any help

112's and 113's (same design) have been known to leak from the timing cover bolts. Clean it, isolate it, remove the bolt and put a small bead of the Benz silicone on the shank, let it sit up for 10 min or so, then retorque the bolt. I will say I've not see it on the r/h side ..... yet, but the 2 below the oil pressure test port on the l/h are pretty good at it. The front seals on these will leak on occasion as well as the oil level/quality sensors stuck in the top of the upper oil pan behind the alternator. Just do this 1 bolt at a time.
