400ex Oil Leaking

I noticed the other day that it seems my 06 400ex is leaking oil. It looks like its coming from the front of the engine where the oil lines are bolted to it. any ideas on the cause of this and what can be done to remedy it? Thanks in advanced.

There are o-rings in there. Either they are shot or missing. Really easy to change and cheap.

I picked up some o-rings at lowes that seemed to be the right size and threw those on.
I'm not sure if it stopped the leaking tho.
I'll be keeping an eye on it more closely.

You could have taken the old ones and dropped them in some laquer thinner to swell them up to buy you some time to get the right ones. all you have to do is drop them in count to 5 and pull them out and dry it dosen't take long.

Penetrating oil will make them swell up, too.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
