Unhappy 2015 Tiguan SEL Oil Leak

Found some oil drips on the garage floor. Is engine oil, can't really see where its coming from as the under shroud is covering the bottom end. I didn't have room to jack up and remove it, so took it to the dealer where I purchased. They will inspect tomorrow and let me know. I'll report back! 2015 with 24800 miles.

Found back drain plug seal from the last oil change. Replaced plug, sealing washer and change oil, run and inspect for any other leaking. None found.

The sump plugs don't have a proper sealing washer they are just a flat steel washer. I've had many discussions which my dealer about this. You fit a new sump plug on every oil change.
