2012 Gl350 Turbo Exhaust Leak

I have a turbo leak coming from the exhaust side. See attached picture, I have a flat screw driver pointing at the source of the leak. My turbo sounds like a whistle when give it throttle. Any help will be appreciated.

Jim, buy this eBay and that should fix the problem?

Try to find an authorized Bosch shop whose business does turbo diesel service in your area.

I am going to rebuild the turbo myself and published the results. I rebuild the turbo in my 1982 300D and it came out good.

Then the Chinese made part may be fine then. I'd still try to source the part from an authorized turbodiesel shop.

I've always used Turbo Diesel and Electric Service, Guy Paine Rd, Macon, Ga.
