Hi all,
Has anyone experienced any oil leak around the turbo area?
I tried looking but can't seem to find the source.
Seems the oil is dripping down to wire and hose below.
So far, it's about 5 to 6 drips overnight, but not sure if oil is seeping out during running.

Are there issues with oil seals around that area and what are the common parts I need to change?

Thanks in advance.

I guess 1.6HDi ... noticed same thing lately. It's on air inlet side of turbo. It's kinda greasy but I noticed there are some traces of oil under on some wires. Anybody knows what might be the reason. Will upload photo later (it's -13°C outside so I can't be bothered to do it right now)

Mine is 1.6 THP petrol, HDi engines are really scarce here.

just noticed it is from the top part of the union . Thing is should i replace the whole pipe ?
Is it difficult to do? Local experts say its difficult as i need to remove the Cat to access some parts

Any advise or diagram /guide would really help as I plan to do it myself since i'm quite handy with tools

It happened to me about 2 months ago. Needed to change the whole pipe. Cat had to be removed to reach the lower pipe connection. I had mine done in a motor workshop.
