Default WRX Oil Leak

I had a slow leak in my WRX after 8k. I brought it to the dealer twice. The second time they found oil coming out of one of the bolts that holds the block together. I think they just squirted some silicone in there to stop the leak. Should I pursue this further and have then replace the seal. The way I understand it is that the block is two pieces. I would assume it has a one piece gasket between. Does anybody know what it looks like down there. I am not too impressed with their fix.


Should I pursue this further??? Dont want this to come back and bite me after the warranty is out.

Thanks

Andrew

I just found your post on-line. i just posted similar problem with my 2004 WRX wagon. I know this has been a while but how did you resolve this problem? My dealer has not been able to fix my oil leak problem after 3 tries.

Thanks

Chris
