Default Oil coming from the crank sensor?

Car is in the sig. The crank sensor was replaced a few months ago and now it kinda looks oil soaked or oil is coming from it. Is this normal or does something need to be fixed? Is it complicated?

Is there a way or place to get the o ring before i take it out. I've read you have to go to the dealer, i hate our dealer... he's a *****. Where would you get it from?

Bump 2 things...
1. Is this the right replacement. I'll be so happy.

2. Sooo should i do my oil change before replacing the o-ring. Or even with it off will it just slowly seep? Does it pop in & out no problems?

That oring looks right if the picture is accurate. Oil will not leak out because it is above the oil level line....and yes it comes right in/out.
