Oil leak not rocker cover?

Hi I've got an oil leak from the front right of the engine, I have replaced the rocker cover gasket with a genuine fiat one and cleaned the area but there still seem to be oil leaking from under the coil packs is this possible? It's too dark tonight to check it out properly just wondered if anyone had any ideas.
Thanks,
Dan

The Coil pack seal - if that leaks it dribbles onto the thermostat - often mistaken for a rocker cover

Cheers ziggy is that something I can just seal up with gasket sealant stuff or is it a rubber type one like the rocker cover?

unbolt the coil packs bracket and you will find an o-ring, take that to a motor factors and get a new one , should not cost you more than 2.
