Help. Weird oil leak

Daughters car has developed an oil leak 2017 1.2 500 Riva
Out of warranty by a month.
Oil leak from a blanked off point on the rocker cover. It's at the front of the rocker cover and is about 4mm diameter. Tried putting an image but don't seem able to
Any ideas if this is a replaceable bung and if so what is the part number?
Ta for any advice.

The car should have a 3rd year on the warranty.



Look in the Newbie section for photo advice.. yellow section at top

Thanks for the reply. I'm sure it says 2 years warranty and 3 years parts and labour servicing.
Probably worth seeing what the local stealers say.

Don't forget it's not just warranty, the car has to be of adequate quality so if it is manufacturing defect they should fix it regardless of warranty.

Ask nicely and see what they say.

Took it to the dealers and they said they have never seen one leaking from that point before. Booked in for a replacement rocker cover under warranty.
Cheers for the comments.
