The seal is not expensive ($8). If you are to replace it, replace the front seal also ($4). It need to take the camshaft out to replace these seals. Open the top cover ( Need to replace this valve cover gasket $30), remove those bolts holding the camshaft into place. Make sure to mark the position of the notch at the front end camshaft. If it is put back misaligned, your engine is not turning on. My advice is to take off all the spark plugs out so you can turn easily the crankshaft by hand to have the notch of the camshaft aligned straightly with the timing mark from the camshaft. It called TDC. From then you note the position of the camshaft before taking it out so you can return it in the same position. Good luck.

Change Spark Plugs but engine starts to leak oil


??? Sounds purely coincidental... You may want to look at where the oil is coming from and fix that issue. Oil pan, Oil filter, oil cooler, oil sending unit, intake manifold, valve covers, rear seal....

Oil coming out of gearbox apparently on 05 freelander td4. do I require a new gearbox or can this be fixed?


That depends from where the leak is coming: it can be as simple as an loose drain plug, could get worse if it's a worn seal or can be terminal if the gearbox's case is fissured. Put the SUV on stands,clean the gearbox, start the engine at idle, put it into a gear (3 or 4 will do) and look from where the oil is coming.
