Same problem i had,i thought it was the sump gasket so took it to my local garage for them to change it then get a call not long after and they said it was coming from up in the timing covers and was either crank seal or oil pump gasket.

So thats where my car is at the moment getting the whole lot done belts pullys gaskets ect so im expecting a pretty bill On Monday or Tuesday

To get bottom pulley off just whip flywheel cover plate off and stick a screw driver in.

Put the car in 2nd and then use a breaker bar to undo it.

When I done my timing belt to get the bottom pulley off I just stuck the car in 5th gear, get someone to put the brakes on and then undo the bolt on the bottom pulley
