Default oil leaking 2.2

I have oil leaking from the rear of my passenger head. There is a round plug with 2 ears coming off of it, i'm sure that is the source. Can someone tell me what it's for so i can get a part# to fix it. All other gaskets and seals have been changed btw.

It's a cover plate for a distributor that we never got here in the states. IIRC, there's an O ring behind it. I would remove the plate, clean away the oil, and goop it up with Ultra Grey silicone.

its actually reffered to as the right rear cam seal. call the dealer and buy a new o ring. all you have to do is remove the two bolts then twist the piece out, removed old seal, clean, replace o ring then reinstall. no sealant needed. should take about ten minutes.

If you use the grey silicone idea, make sure to let the silicone cure for 24 hours before running the engine.

I just picked up a '98 Impreza L wagon and it looks to have this exact same leak. Fortunately it doesn't seem too difficult to reach.

It appears to have a smaller leak at the front side of the left head. Any guesses? Cam seal there? That looks substantially less accessible.

Luckily, according to the service records, it's had the valve cover gaskets, oil pump gasket, and inner axle seals replaced about 30k ago.
