Pls. Help Me Identify Oil Leak


I just saw a poodle of oil in my garage and identified it as oil. I warmed up the car and looked around to see where it was coming from and it appears to be coming from the VCG, between the half moons. Car is 2004 330 Ci with 70k, and according to previous maintenance records, VCG and grommets were replaced at 60K by an indy mechanic. Please see picture below. Am I right to assume that I need to replace the VCG? I thank you in advance for your responses to this post.
