Hi, i was under the bonnet yesterday checking some things and i noticed an oil leak at the top of the engine close to the alternator. Any ideas where it might be coming from? car is a 2005 mk Focus 1.6 Zetec (100hp)

Next to alternator suggests either from the front corner of the cam cover or from the power steering time to take a rag and try to trace it back to the source

oh fun times! it could be the power steering thinking about it as the resevoir did look a little low.
