159 JTDM wobbly/loose turbo pipe

Was just fiddling about under the bonnet the other day and noticed the turbo pipe seemed quite loose and could be moved back and forth but not off (could not move it quite that far) it could also move side to side.

The pipe clip is not the usual jubilee clip but the type that needs to be put on with a tool so cant tighten it.... does this sound OK, turbo seems to be working ok according to guage, noticed also that the pipe was quite dirty (oily) but the surrounding area of engine is quite clean.

Any ideas?
