Default Oil leak

Hi,
Just joined today in the hope that someone can help with a problem on my 207 1.4 Vti 2007.
it has an oil leak that is quite severe I think I've identified that it's coming from below the silver cover identified in the photo, I have no idea what this is, maybe something to do with the camshaft?
The oil drips down the engine and lands on the exhaust causing a constant burning smell when running.
Does anyone know if this is an easy fix, is it a gasket or o-ring that'll need replacing?
Thanks

if its the part at signalled with the blue line, its the vacuum pump, that runs pressure to the brake servo, its ran off the exhaust camshaft.

should be a simple fix with the seals for it replaced.

Nice one, thanks, couldn't find any reference to it in the Haynes manual but now I can get the seals ordered.

you may find its coming from the camshaft cover gasket, seem to remember thats one area where you are advised to add a little liquid gasket.

I got a brand new Victor Reinz rocker cover gasket and the damn thing still leaked.

Use liquid gasket too and the problem goes away.

clean it all off and try and pinpoint the leak, this engine has the same kind of setup, notice the added liquid gasket at 12.45. I just use the 5 halfords stuff never had a problem, although i do put more on than the vid.
rule out this first.

I have an oil leak from around the alternator area - had the rocker cover gasket done and the cam shaft seals (mechanic told me it was leaking from here). This has not stopped the leak or it had more than one in the first place.

Anyone else think I should change the crankshaft seal before doing the head gasket?
