Oil leak from the left side cover (2007 FS550e)

Hi guys!

I went to my garage to test a few graphics I'm doing for my Berg and as soon as I got there, I immediately changed plans. This is what I saw:



Tried to follow it's path in reverse so I could find out where it came from and got more droplets of oil allover:


On the frame


Under the engine


From the case to the frame


This is the view from the left side


The oil cap was no dirtier than usual


This is definitely dirtier than usual!


Moving up, there's oil even on the cylinder head...


Then I cleaned as much as I could, started the engine and left it idling for a few minutes looking for leaks. Not a single droplet. It was already hot enough around the engine so I turned it off and let it cool down, while still looking for leaks. And this is what I found:



(Notice the bubbling?)


Took a closer picture:



I guess we are looking at the closing cover (80036010050) completely out it's place. Let me just remind you I'm a complete noob in mechanics but this still looks weird to me.


Closing cover - #10


What in the world has happened here, and how am I supposed to solve this?

Thanks!

I went back there, now that it's completely cold.

The cover was a bit stuck, but I was able to push it inside. But as soon as I let go the cover comes back out as if it had some sort of a spring.

I guess I was really lucky not to get hit by that cover followed by a jet of hot oil on my leg...



Now, for the experts (*cof* Taffy *cof*) what is that cover for? It looks like someone decided to open a window on a wall and then covered it with some cardboard.

That plug (#10 in the picture) covers the end of the cam shaft and on your engine it's mounted backwards!
If you take off the head/valve cover you can see that there is a groove in the hole where the plug goes. The lip on the plug should be mounted in that so that it doesn't come loose. My advice is, buy some new o-rings (#11 in the pic), flip the plug so the lip goes in the groove and mount everything back with some liquid gasket and then your good to go.

You are 100% sure about it? I think that there is some space left to allow the oil to get to the other side of the bearing.
As far as I remember mine cap is mounted exactly the same way (using new orings) as on posted picture and it doesn't leak at all

Looking at the manual, I wouldn't say it's mounted backwards either...
