Oil Leak

I have a 2009 Fit sport with about 39K miles on it. I have had numerous oil leaks that the dealer doesn't seem to be able to fix. I should clarify its more a seep or slow leak that apears to originate from the far right, (passenger side) of the oil pan. At least that where I found the last drop forming. It isn't enough to even drip, just eventually coats the the bottom of the oil pan. The dealer noticed it before me and changed the crankshaft oil seal at about 35K after an oil change. Recently I had a mechanic friend put my car on his lift to see how my pads were wearing and noticed the oil on the bottom of the pan. Since its still under warranty he said take it back to the dealer. At first they said it was nothing, cleaned it, and tried to put some leak detector powder on it and found nothing. A week later I used some ramps I had to check it again and thats when I found the first little drop starting again so back I went. They replaced the same crankshaft seal again, and also the crankshaft pulley this time. When I picked it up the tech wasn't there and the service writer wasn't much help answering my questions. Has anyone else had any similar experiences? I've only had it back for a day so I'll give it a week and check it again.
