13 Jk PCV leak??

Wondering if any owners here have experienced this?
For about two months Ive been smelling burning oil in the cabin on startup. Changed the oil yesterday and inspected for leaks. Passenger side heat shield on exhaust was wet with oil with what looks like the pcv directly above it at the back of the valve cover. Very tight spot, I could barely fit my hand back there. Was able to push the hose down quite a bit... So I'm wondering if these are a common fail or if it just had a poor/loose hose connection allowing the leak? Made an appointment for the dealer since it's still under factory.

Visit to the dealership confirmed it is a faulty PCV, parts on order. If anybody experiences an oil leak similar to this, give it a check.

Hmmm, I wonder if this could also be a source of the sand intrusion our Jeeper from Dubai is experiencing?
