Jetta 2000 with very stuck VNT vanes, turbo spins, occasionally squeals on startup, does get about 44mpg. Do not look forward to removing it.

You could try the innotec turbo cleaning kit. It's basically like oven cleaner. I have not tried this method because it's still better to remove the turbo if the problem is stuck vanes. It's also pretty hazardous stuff to handle.

I have the same problems. The actuator is stuck at full boost and now when you mention it i have heard some loud squealing on startup. I thought it was the starter.
