    Question oil leak

    Have just noticed that oil has dripped under my car, so crawled under the front end to see if i could see anything...
    looks like the oil is running down the gearbox and dripping off as its the lowest point.
    It's a 1.7dti 16v 2003 model.
    Am i right in saying the oil filter is above there ?
    Could this be the problem area, it's due a service in 2 months and is serviced every year.
    Has any one else had this ??
    Any help please ...
