Got a dealer suggestion to replace a part, leak from "left side cam solenoid seal". The part number is 99610522352. Could not find any info one replacing the seal. Has anyone done it or have instructions? Before I spend the cash, the part is $18, labor $130. Thank you!

For the bank 1-3 side, pulling off the old flange cover is easy (two bolts and no jack stands behind rear drivers wheel), getting to disconnect wire that connects to it so you can slip on a new cover is indeed a royal pain in the *** (way up by the cam cover/AOS bushing), unless you have tiny hands, certainly requires removing the wheel and jack stands.

Just my opinion, but I believe a little anerobic flange sealant on the base of the bolts and base of the flange (not the inner seal) will help prevent leaks too, even though Porsche rarely recommends doing that for any seal. The one on the 1-3 side had a leak that I would describe "a little more than a sweat", and replaced it while I had the transmission out and wheels off, it was a snap then. The 3-6 side does not leak from original factory 70k miles and 11 years ago.

They tend to sweat or sometimes leak a bit. This may be a little controversial here, but when I reassembled my heads I used some Permatex copper RTV on mine. No leaking whatsoever. I think previously they had been sealed with JB weld or some other epoxy like substance. Another advantage of this method is that you don't have to get to the wire connector as you can do it with the wires in place.
