SOURCE: main seal
First is it a front seal ,or rear main seal,(front seal,being were you see the pulleys and fan belts,,you have to look at the bottom pulley,follow the shaft to the motor,where the shaft goes into the motor is the front seal,the pulley and everthing behind it has to come out then you pull out the seal,auto zone actually has free tool rental that you can pull the seal,and a tool to put it back in,if a rear main seal its where the shaft from the transmission meets the back of the motor,youll have to pull the trannsmission back,check where you see the oil leek from,the front seal you can do if mechanically inclined,but if its the rear you should take to a mechanic,if this helps please give me a fix ya vote

Your info is confusing. The rear cam seal is not inside the timing belt cover, and the crank seal is at the bottom of the engine, while the cam seal is at the top.
Is there oil at the top, around the cam seal? Or just at the bottom? It's common for the oil pump seal to leak. If you get the oil pump reseal kit, it contains the oil pump seal and gasket, as well as the crankshaft seal. Make sure you seal the oil pump bolts, Volvo has special copper washers for this purpose.
Just try to locate the oil leak before replacing any more parts. Sometimes it can be something simple like the oil cap seal or the oil trap housing.

Sorry for the severe delay.
I am personally going back to answer your unanswered question.
I do not know if you still need the answer, but I am going to answer it in case you still do.
The Front Oil Seal must be replaced when the Timing Belt/Chain is replaced. It is located behind the Crankshaft Pulley on the Crankshaft.

If a seal is bad yes it will leak. You will have to check with a Honda dealership for accurate warranty information.
