2003 Z06 Oil leak at oil pan

Hi Guys,
I'm seeing some oil seeping from the oil pan on my 2003 Z06. It has about 26K miles and gets very little driving over the course of the year. I first noticed that the oil pan was wet a couple of years ago but it seemed to be only a slight leak. My first guess is to get the gaskets for the oil pan and replace them. I understand that there is a front and back as the oil pan is in two sections. At least that is what I have read. Anybody here have experience with this type of problem and how fix it properly?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Fred

If it's just the "bat wing" section that is leaking, you can change that easily. If your leak is coming from the main pan, I'm pretty sure you will have to drop the cradle.

Hey Jub,
How ya doin. Thanks for the reply and great picture. I'm going to order the rear "batwing" gasket and try that first. It looks the front has some wet looking area on the sides though too. I'll take one more look (I've got a 4 post lift) and probably order both gaskets ;-).
Thanks,
Fred
