Hi, I have a 2004 T5 1.9 tdi. I've been scouring the internet for information on the exhaust leak I have. I can see that this site is more US based, and there are no transporters. However, the information here is the best I've found and I understand the 1.9 tdi is common across the range, so I thought I'd politely ask for some help here!

The leak comes from the where the VNT actuator arm enters the turbo. Here's a vid of a someone else with the same problem:-

Is there any easy fix for this? I can see from teardown vids that there isn't really any seal between the arm and the exhaust chamber. How does a working turbo maintain a seal? Is this a turbo replacement?

Many Thanks,
