Oil mess around breather hose!

Whilst putting on a new belt I noticed an oil leak around the area of where the AOS breather pipe connects to the drivers side cylinder head. At least I think this is where it's coming from.
Anyone else had this and what to remedy it? New pipe, new 'O' ring, etc?
Thanks.

Very common, you should replace the part.

Doing a bit more research and I found this pic.
I guess I'll be replacing this PCV soon - looks like fun trying to access it!

Replaced the crankcase vent this afternoon - DO NOT WANT TO EVER DO IT AGAIN!
Total pain in the arse to do - this video was helpful, but I also removed the knock sensor to help with access.

That's why I said replace instead of clean!
