Default Help..... Oil in my Turbo intake Pipe

Hi all, i would really appericiate your help, i have noticed that there is a 2-3 inch pipe under the engine which i believe to be the turbo intake pipe, is leaking oil on the joint between the alloy/flexi pipe. I have seen various postings on different sites, some state there is nothing to worry about and is normal, and some say it indicates the turbo/seals are on the way out. does aone have any experiance of this or can shed some light on this, i would like some ideas before i go back to peugeot so i know what i am talking about. Thanks for your help

Default Dont Panic

I would say that you have no cause for concern. Especially if you have not noticed your car using any oil.
A small amount of oil leaking past a turbo seal can look like a lot when it is blown by the turbo.
Try cleaning the pipe and refitting if it is bothering you.
