Default Oil Leak on my 2002 996

Well, just as Doc said my 2002 Carrera has 17k miles and has an oil leak I assume from one of the seals. I thought I had made it past this phase since I had the Rear Main Seal replaced at 15K due to oil leak. But, here I am again with a few spots on my garage floor.
It is in almost the same place but I assume thier are several seals?
And, is it now $1500 on my own dime?
Should I wait a while and replace the clutch at the same time?
Any chance this is the SAME seal that the Dealer replaced at $15K/
And, is the ONLY a job for the dealer.

Please advise.

Yes, more than likely it is the same seal, but let a shop look at it to verify it before you get to upset about it. Maybe it is something completely different, you never know.

If it only lasted 15k miles, the shop that did the work previously should replace it free of charge.
