under the vacuum pump on the us passenger side of the front timing cover. it is easily removable without taking out the vac pump/brake booster as long as you have the right size deep socket and extension.

Be careful it's not leaking from the upper timing cover, sometimes those leak and it drips right on top of the oil pressure sensor. I replaced both already, sensor is about 15$ and gasket 9$ from the dealer

The vaccum pump gasket also can leak and is an easy and cheap fix. Search and you will find. This is more likely the culprit.
