2008 Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD oil leak in the front

2008 Grand Cherokee 3.0 CRD oil leak in the front

Just bought the vehicle a month ago and after a week or two I noticed some oil drops on the driveway. Immediately thought about the turbo seal leaking and ordered a new seal. After I got the part took the engine cover off and replaced the seal. The old seal was deformed a bit from the heat so needed replacing, but this was not the source of the leak I was dealing with.
After further investigation I found the front of the engine being more dirty from oil than I remembered.
Maybe the dealer cleaned it, or I didn't noticed it....

Anyway, by what I see I suspect the oil cooler seals are leaking.
By the description from the manual and from posts what I found, this looks like a big job. (and a lot of $$$ if done by the dealer)

Anybody done this? Does somebody have the list of parts and seals to have on hand for this job? Maybe some special tools needed?
