6.7L oil leaking at oil filter

My 6.7 powerstroke has developed a small leak where the oil filter threads in at. The leak is very small and will run down to the bottom of the filter. Only enough oil to cover the tip of your finger but I just changed the oil and new filter does the same thing. Any suggestions? It's under warranty but If it's an easy seal to replace I would rather do it myself because its my daily.

Are you sure its not just "extra" from the oil change? I get that almost every oil change, no matter how careful I am, and is caused by either what drained out, or the fact that I prefill my filters, and spill a little around the edge of the filter. It eventually stops. And, I've also noticed more often than not, the old gasket stays on the engine,and could easily be missed, doubling up, and causing a leak.
I don't have to write now because you hit it on the head!:smile2:
