Take off the alloy pipe in the upper right of the pic and check for the quantity of oil in it.When the shaft seals fail it looks like this,just a bit messy initially but it can steadily fill an intercooler and worst case the engine can start feeding on the oil and "run away ".

Any oil in that pipe is from leaking turbo seal,it should be clean,maybe a minute amount ,but not leaking out like you have,it is the boost air pipe to the engine,via an intercooler if you have one.

Is there anything inside that pipe in centre of pic (that connects to the orange hose) that could fall out when undoing it ?
