PN is 30720097, you'll need to pull the valve cover to replace. Good time to do a valve cover gasket reseal from the looks of things. FCP sells a decent reseal "kit" comprised of OE and aftermarket parts- https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthrea ... m-FCP-EURO
When I did mine a few years ago, there was no kit, full OE parts list and some helpful tips may be found here- https://forums.swedespeed.com/showthrea ... eplacement

I had the same scare on mine. clean up the area with some brake clean and see if the leaks reappear. Mine have not and I believe it was left over residue from careless oil fills. I would also check the seal on the oil cap.

The parts that you circled are the actuators for the Variable Valve Timing (VVT). The end of the actuators stick through the valve covers, where there is an oil seal to keep the oil in. It sounds like your oil seals have failed.
