W114 M130 crankase oil leak

Since I rebuild the engine a year ago I always seems to have had leak just in the power steering area. It is engine oil no doubt about and it is not coming from the crankshaft seal as it is new and no signs of leak.
I am very confident it is fom the front left crankcase seal. I used good seal but maybe I've missed an area or didn't seal good.

What is the best way to fix this?
I tried spray on seal at no avail.
Is there a way to fix this without removing the engine?
How do you guys fix crankase leaks?
It is not much oil and usually drips for few minutes when I stop and doesn't leak anymore.

See pics

Thank you.
