Default Turbo leaking

2006 sprinter. Yet another thing I need help with. This is getting annoying. Just one of those weeks....
The turbo is leaking oil. Look at the pictures, these are taken from the bottom. You can see the alternator so you can get an idea of where it is. I have arrows pointing to where itís leaking from. Is this just some sort of connection I can fix thatís not seated right? or should I get a new turbo or what?

I look at your photo and don't see what you're circling in red...
But i *do* see a very familiar tell-tale.
Could it be the true source of the sprayed oil you're seeing?
(there is entrapped oil in that turbo airstream ... that's normal)

Here's how i fixed mine... this Dorman part has a better seam/seal: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...rintersou02-20

Oil vents from the crankcase and, as Dick said, into the air intake. Every single one of us has oil in our charge air piping, but you also have a loose hose clamp or two, probably a split resonator, maybe a cracked/split hose here of there, etc. I think your circle points to where the resonator attaches to the compressor outlet. There's an o-ring there, they wear out and leak oil eventually. Don't have a part number but I assume they're available, though I'm also pretty sure the new Dorman resonator you're about to order also comes with a fresh o-ring?

Looks like you need a new resonator and sealing O-ring.

The O-ring is Dodge #05139047AA, MB# A 013 997 84 45

(i don't recall if my Dorman came with a ring or not)
