It only seems to happen sometimes but I will get this looked at asap. Thanks for advice
Mate, if you seriously suspect there's any noise coming from the turbo you really shouldnt drive it anymore, get it towed to a garage - you never know when the next rev will be the last!, a turbo going can destroy an engine, hopefully its not the turbo though and just something like a loose exhaust cover!

On 1.6TDCI the aluminium turbo to intercooler pipe can split. It cracks in two places in opposite directions emanating from the "start" and "stop" of the upper bracket weld. Fractures are of a fatigue nature resulting from vibration ,the bracket being rigidly attached to the engine.
