Turbo rattle on Cali 300TD?

I noticed the turbocharger on my Cali 300TD is rattling where it connects to the intake manifold. Is there a rubber seal that goes in between them or is my turbo loose? Its making an awful lot of noise but I can't seem to find any reference online about this connection.

There is an aluminum ring with two O rings on it that seal against the bore of the turbo and manifold. The turbo will need to be removed to repair/replace the parts. The compressor housing bolts may also be loose, causing the rattle. A loose housing would probably chew up the compressor wheel, and/or the housing itself.

Oh wow that sounds terrible. Good thing I'm planning on rebuilding the turbo. Where can I find a replacement ring and o-ring you speak of? I have never seen anything like that online or in person.

That short sleeve he is holding has the 2 O-Rings. I fits in the intake manifold, and the turbo.

I think you air cleaner mount is broken, or needs new rubber mounts.

the california model really doesn't suffer from the air box rattle, it only has one grommet on the bottom and two brackets holding the sides.
