They can't be repaired except with special tools and fixtures and parts. You need to buy a rebuilt one.

Who can I contact to fix my turbo in Pretoria?

Check your local listings for turbo rebuilding. I had a customer recently that needed a turbo for their Dodge diesel truck. Dealer wanted $1,400 for a new turbo and the customer couldn't afford it. I found a local shop that does only turbo rebuilding and had his repaired for $600.

Oil leaking around turbo on 2000 jetta

If you are getting boost, your turbo is likely not blown. There is a banjo bolt connection for the turbo oil. If it has loosened, then it would be leaking oil on the outside of the turbo. A blown turbo leaks on the inside (I believe, though not positive).

I don't have a TDI, but have a VW 1.8T with a turbo I recently replaced.

There is really nothing to fix other than to replace the turbo. It is not a tough job (at least the 1.8T wasn't) though it took 11 hours to complete. So you should try to get the oil leak fixed (near too much heat to ignore) but should likely only need to replace if it's not providing boost, or making strange sounds.

My 99 9.5 4cyl saab blows blue and white smoke . i ve been told it is a turbo replacement fix. the car has 161k. Is it really worth fixing the turbo? The car is in good condition, new h2o pump,tires,good...

I would replace to turbo. To make sure it is the turbo and not the head gasket, remove the air intake to the turbo (not a hard job) and then (with engine off) grab that turbo shaft. Try and pull and push it and move it up and down. If there is ANY play, it's the turbo. If you got 161k out of one turbo, that is VERY GOOD. Normal is 120k or less. There is a guy on ebay that sells rebuilt for about $300. If you do the work yourself (Experienced Tuner) you can save $1k. Else you will have to have a shop do it, usually about $1,200 or so for everything. If you are in the WI area, we could work something out.

Turbo= not working

Most likely the turbo is gone. What ever part of the turbo went, just replace the entire turbo. Not serviceable 99% of the time. The engine will not like being driven for any extended period of time with a bad turbo.
