Oil from Turbo pipe 159 JTDM

Hi guys just had an oil change on my 159 JTDM and the mechanic has told me the turbo pipe is spiting oil out on the right side of the engine bay (see photo). He has basically said the car needs a new turbo hence to say after only 32000 since new I'm gutted. Is there anything else that could cause this problem or is it definitely the turbo. Haven't got a clue what to do has he has also advised me not to drive the car. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

The leak looks like it's more on the rear right not front centre.
Do you have any more detailed photos of the source of the leak.
Have you checked the all the PCV pipes to ensure they at all tight?

Thanks for getting back to me. Sorry for late reply I've been away for a few days. I have a better photo if you can take a look that would be great.

I'm not an expert on the 1.9 jtdm engine, but I'm pretty sure he's talking rubbish. Your mechanic that is. Thats a leaking pipe, not sure which pipe, but the turbo is at the front of the engine, no where near the vicinity of those pics. Got an Alfa specialist near to you by any chance ? No need to panic.

Around half way across the back of the engine block there are some black pipes that come from your oil separator that vents the crankcase pressure - please check along there length & from the images you have posted I can see where the oil had sprayed to but not from.
Can you ask someone to raise the rpm while you look in the vicinity of the spray to find the source?
