Ford Focus Diesel Turbo

Could someone post some pictures or a very detailed explanation as to how i can gain access to my turbo outlet without removing hardly anything. Would this be from the top of the engine or the bottom of the car to access it?

Hi Guys and Gals
I have a little engine problem that im trying to get sorted out.
When my car reaches 3000 revs in 3rd or 4th gear and around 2000 revs in 5th my "engine Malfunction" light pops up. I do have my Engine management light come on too but that's on when i start my car but on occasion it does stay turned off for a short while.
I took it for a diagnostics scan and it came back as either the MAF sensor (which i had changed) Or they said the turbo vanes could be sticking/clogged, I've look on the net and some people said their problem was fixed by replacing the "Fuel Filter" which is getting changed tomorrow to see if it could be that. If the problem is still there then people have suggested using "Mr Muscle" to clean out the turbo vanes and stop them sticking which i don't really want to use (plus kinda clueless as to how to use) but i did find a product called "Innotec" This is suppose to be used to clean the vanes in a turbo and a lot of people have had good outcomes with this product, but again i cant find out how to use this on my car.
I need help in locating my turbo, whether i need to disconnect the whole turbo and any other help with using this product. I don't mind paying a small fee for a garage to do this but i cant find a garage willing to use it and most places just suggest a new turbo (haven't got the money for that"
Now i don't know much about cars but i'm a quick leaner and don't mind looking for other guides to explain things in more detail, but i cant find a guide for my car on the net.
Thanks in Advance.
